  • IAN PARKER’s DEBUT CD FOR ATMA

    September 2010

    Canadian pianist Ian Parker’s new CD of concertos by Ravel, Stravinsky, and Gershwin with the London Symphony Orchestra has been released to critical acclaim. The recording was made in Abbey Road and produced by Michael Fine. As the Toronto Star puts it:

    Young Canadian pianist Ian Parker brings youthful shimmer and silken restraint to George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F Major and Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major, demonstrating how close in style these two pieces really are. The real treat on this disc is a cappricio by Igor Stravinsky, a boisterous romp we should hear more often. The London Symphony Orchestra is in fine form under conductor Michael Francis.
