    "On the last page of the booklet there is a beautifully captured sketch of Ravel by none other than our pianist at age 12! So we have a talented visual artist as well as a pianist and that’s just what we need for the world of Ravel. (...) This fine collection bodes well for the future and we look forward to further volumes from this exceptional pianist."

    "Not all pianists are able to answer such an 'equation with many variables', but Vincent Larderet offers his own solution: he manages to create his own, very specific style of interpretation of Ravel."

    Gérard Belvire

    "we find the profound honesty - the term is in no way disparaging - of the playing, its limpid articulation that illuminates the architecture of the music like a harmonic landscape, balancing dynamic scale and sound planes with great finesse. (...) the elegance of the style and the refinement of the colours are seductive."

    "Intensity and understatement sit comfortably side-by-side in renderings that are suitably atmospheric. Larderet performs these pieces in humble service to the composer; at the same time, he recognizes that to truly honour Ravel he must impose himself upon the material with authority."

    Bertrand Boissard

    "Vincent Larderet's Ravel is a singular work. Is it because he refers to the scores by Vlado Perlemuter (and their annotations, reputed to be by Ravel)? (...) It's a miracle that the performer manages to convey so much detail in such conditions. (...) reminiscent of Michelangeli - whom Larderet reveres. (...) We can't wait for the next part of the series, announced as three further volumes."

    "Ravel’s Piano Concerto for Left Hand with Vincent Larderet excels in the Vancouver Symphony concert"
    James Bash

    "A standing ovation brought Larderet back to center stage, and he responded with terrific encore, Scriabin’s Prelude and Nocturne for the Left Hand. The first part had a delicate, yet melancholic sentiment, and the second was more rhapsodic with a lovely melody that made me think of Rachmaninoff. It was all exquisitely played by Larderet, and that generated another standing ovation from the audience."

    "(...) add in fine sound from Avie producer Martin Rust, recorded at the Alter Sendesaal Bremen, and one has a distinctive Ravel release that stimulates an appetite for the rest of Larderet's set."

    "The set opens with Ravel's five movement Miroirs (1904-05) a breakthrough world of great sound color impressions and clangorous tonal brilliance. Larderet brings his own personally inventive aesthetics to each movement."

    "Throughout this release, Larderet demonstrates impeccable pianistic technique combined with an unusual level of sensitivity to Ravel’s tonal colors and his free and variable treatment of rhythm and harmony. If the remaining recordings in this planned cycle are performed as tastefully and with as much style and understanding as this one, Larderet will have established himself as an absolutely top-of-the-line interpreter of Ravel’s works for solo piano.”
