This week’s free download is the first movement of Ravel’s Piano Concerto, performed by pianist Gabriela Montero with the Orchestra of the Americas under Carlos Miguel Prieto. It was recorded on Orchid Classics and was awarded four stars for both performance and recording in the December issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Heavily influenced by jazz, Ravel’s Piano Concerto opens with the thrilling sound of a whip-crack. After the fiery first movement, Ravel explores a more serene soundworld. On this disc, Ravel’s Piano Concerto is performed alongside the premiere recording of Montero’s own Piano Concerto, which also has jazzy and subversive influences.

‘Hold onto your hats!’, writes our review, Christopher Dingle. ‘There is rarely a lack of energy where Gabriela Montero is concerned and this disc is no exception. This is a fine account, with plenty of fizz in the outer movements.’
