Brenda Lucas Ogdon, a critically acclaimed pianist from the United Kingdom, is set to release a series of renditions of Maurice Ravel’s works in her latest album called Ravel Que J’Aime. Ogdon has played in every corner of the world and with some of the best orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Some of the pieces featured on Ravel Que J’Aime include “Jeux D’Eau,” “Sonatine,” “Miroirs,” some movements from Ravel’s “Valses Nobles et Sentimentales,” and so many more. Each piece played by Ogdon is beautifully performed and is sure to make any classical fan a fan of hers.
“… A magical performance of agility in the tremolos and scale sequences… Miss Lucas completed the transition to the modern idiom and gave further proof of her diversity and wide repertoire…” – Evening Standard
