About

A bewitching programme of music often associated with childhood, including favourites by Fauré, Ravel and Debussy; works which amply reward the care lavished on them by Paul Lewis and Steven Osborne in these exquisite accounts.

‘This is a Schubert disc to return to and live with’ – Gramophone (Schubert Piano Duets, CDA67665)

Reviews

Lewis sounds every bit as attuned to French music – which he hasn’t recorded at all – as Osborne, whose Ravel, Debussy and Messiaen have been rightly acclaimed. It’s hard not to go into auto-rave mode; and you’ll notice that, unusually, I haven’t worried about comparisons, for this needs none. ... This offers not only the perfect escape from our current locked-down state but also the most sublime example of peerless pianism.  Harriet Smith (Recording of the Month)
