MAURICE RAVEL (1875-1937) – ORCHESTRAL WORKS I - Pierre MONTEUX

In stock

Just as imaginary as Debussy's or Chabrier's, Spain according to Ravel surprised Falla by an authentic character that made him exclaim 'Es de nuestros' ('You are one of us') as much in the feria as in the Pavane of a dreamt infanta at the Court of Spain. It is the court of Louis XV that appears in Daphnis et Chloé, a 'choreographic symphony less concerned with archaism than with faithfulness to the Greece of my dreams' (dixit Ravel). This pastorale could have been performed at the Petit Trianon, Ravel as a brilliant Rameau of the 20th century, leaving the coherence of the gesture to Fokine. Pierre Monteux recorded the ideal version of this programme that was so familiar to him.
