(The Georgian-born pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja showcases three very different composers from the early twentieth century, Ravel, Enescu and Debussy. The second half is devoted to Brahms's finest piano sonata, a five-movement work of immense range, influenced by the strength of Beethoven and the tenderness of Schumann.)
