Both Janáček and Ravel have a particular resonance with Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont and reflect his path in the music world. He therefore naturally chose to feature these two composers in his first album.

The idea of pairing up Janáček and Ravel for a whole program has been following Dablemont for many years. Albeit difficult to put into practice within the framework of a live performance, this idea was perfectly fitting a solo recording project. Ravel and Janáček have always been part of the pianist’s core repertoire and a French-Czech program is perfectly reflecting the influence of cross-cultural diversity on his education and personality.

Reviews

A refreshingly brusque approach to both of the Czech works.
Dablemont really impresses in the Ravel.
Gavin Plumley, Entartete Musik

…Dablemont does such a wonderful job of this, that [...] the instrument fades away and you are bewitched by the music alone….
…The future of classical music is obviously in good hands…
Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music Sentinel

…Dablemont as the the talent to hold interest and the potential to grow into an artist of real stature….
…both composers are served by excellent performances…
Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia

…Dablemont acquits himself here with deftness, and a subtlety of touch that is delightful to encounter…
…The tracks sparkle with emotion, and demonstrate a sensitive, nuanced reading of the composer’s ideas…
William Haviland, Sounds for a Sunday
