George Gershwin and Maurice Ravel were something of a mutual admiration society; the story goes that when Gershwin asked Ravel for piano lessons, the Frenchman asked the American how much he earned, then said: ‘Maybe you should be giving me lessons!’ Their influence on each other is evident in this delightful disc from the British husband-and-wife team Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow, who include the original two-piano version of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and ‘I Got Rhythm’ alongside Ravel’s ‘Ma mere l’Oye’ from Mother Goose and a rousing 15-minute climax of Ravel’s Bolero.
