mixed feelings Sept. 12 2015
By Brian Blackadar - Published on
I have very mixed feelings about this CD. Perhaps 4 stars is too generous, but 3 stars would be underrated. She opens with the Valses nobles et sentimentales, Modere – Tres Franc, which is a rather brash sounding piece. The second track, Assez Lent – Avec Une Expression Intense, is a very quiet delicate piece which I find strongly appealing. There are 9 pieces under the Valses nobles et sentimentales heading, and I find the pieces to be alternating between very delicate and beautiful to rather brash. I should say that there is nothing really brash on this CD, but I have an anxiety disorder and use music to relax and calm myself, and I find the changes in dynamic range to be less than ideal for my liking. I love her Debussy solo piano recordings because I find that the mood and style are consistent. However, I am not familiar with Ravel’s piano work, so I have no anticipation of the forthcoming bars.

I found Jeau d’eau to be very nice. This is followed by around 30 min of Eric Satie’s piano pieces. I find the Gymnopedies 1-3, Gnoissiennes 1-3, and Nocturnes 1-5 to be very, very gentle. I find them to be annoyingly gentle. I prefer Ciccolini, Pascal Roge, and Jean Yves-Thibaudet. I find Reinbert de Leeuw to be far, far too slow. I find that my mind is not captured by Kay’s interpretation, but my mind is racing on imagining how Ciccolini plays it. An entire CD of this type of music is something I could perhaps love, but somehow I do not love it in this context. I have only a basic CD player and cannot rearrange the order of the pieces, otherwise I would try starting with Satie’s Gymnopedies 1-3, Gnoissiennes 1-3, and Nocturnes 1-5.

Overall, I find it to be rather whimsical and unpredictable, yet there are moments I love.
