    Argerich and Pletnev Play Prokofiev and Ravel: Splendid Results!

    That Martha Argerich and Mikail Pletnev are two of our finest pianists today goes without saying. When they play together, the result is magic. Few pianists can perform works for two pianos or one piano four hands with the kind of graceful aplomb and energy as these two - and make it sound like an afternoon soirée in their studio! Mikhail Pletnev created this two piano transcription of movements from Prokofiev's ballet "Cinderella" and wisely elected to reference Prokofiev's own keyboard transcription as well as the orchestral score. The resulting work, dedicated to his friend Martha Argerich, is a witty, dreamy, multicolored pianistic synopsis of the ballet. Pletnev and Argerich perform with their usual panache and the keyboard has never sounded so rich! In addition to this important Prokofiev two piano transcription the two artists join in Ravel's keyboard version of ' Ma mère l'oye' and they move into the world of Ravel with the same respect as for the Prokofiev. There are nuances here that at times are covered by Ravel's own brilliant orchestration and spending time with this delightful score is sure to enhance the listener's respect for the concert hall orchestral 'Ma mère l'oye'. Recommended without reservation. Grady Harp
