Cascade – Beethoven, Prokofiev, Schumann
celebrates the depth and intensity of the smallest forms. Prokofiev's Visions Fugitives is a variegated collection of 20 miniatures with hints of Chopin, Scriabin and Shostakovich.

Ravel – Complete Piano Works
Philippe Bianconi first recorded Ravel’s piano music some thirty years ago. "It still moves me as much as ever, and at the same time I realise how far my view of this music has progressed. This new recording has made the connection I have always had with Ravel’s works stronger and more personal. I’ve rediscovered my delight in the Ravelian sound-world, but I’ve also come to grips with the darker side of his music." Listen on NML >
Rachmaninoff. A Reflection
Yekwon Sunwoo played Rachmaninoff's Third Concerto when he became the first Korean to win the top prize at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2017. “It was also through Rachmaninoff’s pieces that I first truly learned how to listen to music and express myself musically… I wanted to include the word ‘reflection’ in the album title because this album is, in some ways, a way for me to look back on myself.” Listen on NML >
