Schoenberg Messiaen Ravel from Pentatone features pianist Francesco Piemontesi with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande conducted by Jonathan Nott. This Stereo and 5 Channel Surround Sound DSD album includes three works for piano and orchestra from the middle years of the twentieth century. Though stylistically very different, all three have American connections.

Ravel’s Concerto in G Major (1932) was his most successful attempt to integrate elements of American Jazz into his own musical language. Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto (1942) was composed in Los Angeles, where Schoenberg was exiled after fleeing Europe. Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques (1956) took as its main source of inspiration a series of gramophone records of American birdsong.
