"Her articulation remains clear and precise, her approach lyrical and expressive. I very much hope this will not be the last of Valerie Tryon's recordings."
- Gramophone

"A breath of springlike air arrives with this programme of French works for piano and orchestra: subtle, sparkling and poised, the three pieces complement one another very well ... Tryon's playing offers beauty of tone, natural musicality and poetic tenderness ... the Fauré dreams, the Ravel glitters."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... Tryon's performance is as convincing as any you'll hear ... in all three works she receives excellent, alert backing from Jac van Steen's Royal Philharmonic. It's always a pleasure to come across great performances from artists who deserve to be better known ... she's on superb form, her playing in these three youthful works full of sparky wit."
- The Arts Desk

Pianist Valerie Tryon is accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Jac Van Steen on this highly acclaimed presentation of three French works for piano and orchestra by Debussy, Fauré and Ravel. Tryon recorded this album in London in September 2014 to celebrate her 80th birthday.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
