Ravel: Gaspard de la nuit: III, Scarbo (9:26)
Beatrice Rana, piano
With performances heralded as “sheer enchantment, alternately out-of-body and almost fearsome in intensity,” Italian pianist Beatrice Rana drew mass attention during the 2013 Cliburn Competition, capturing second prize, as well as the Audience Award. “Gaspard de la nuit was one of the finest, a spellbinding mix of diaphanous textures, hypnotic pealings and scurries alternately mischievous and menacing” (Dallas Morning News).
