The impact of Russian and Oriental culture on Ravel’s formative years retained a hold on him throughout his life. His colourfully re-orchestrated selections from Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite ‘Antar’ and opera Mlada, with interpolations of his own music, as the incidental score for a theatre production are heard here in their première recording, revived and reconstructed alongside a new text that symbolizes the romance and chivalric spirit of Antar the warrior-poet and his beloved Abla. Ravel’s fascination with the exotic is brought together with Debussy’s influence in the ravishing and enduringly popular song cycle Shéhérazade

There could be no better introduction to the sound of the Boston Symphony, in the repertoire in which it became most famous, than this French collection with Charles Munch. Sometimes wild and unpredictable in concert performances, Munch's conducting here is both visceral yet elegant, full of mystery when called for and unbridled in its passion at other times. 1962 Recordings.

A French composer known for melodic and tonal invention. Giving the lie to the idea that turn-of-the-century musical trends were necessarily elite impressionism or "decadent" (whatever that may mean), Ravel's music always speaks directly to the heart in a subtle rhythmic sense through great melody, harmonic richness, and iridescent orchestration.

Leonard Slatkin is an exceptionally versatile conductor, but it is perhaps in French repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries that he feels most comfortable. The singers in Ravel's exquisitely formed little comic opera L'Heure espagnole, complete with cheating lovers hidden inside grandfather's clocks carried up and down stairs, are all entirely appropriate and admirably clear, but it is really Slatkin who's the star here, right from the "Introduction" that's so artfully linked to what follows. Ravel here cultivates a kind of updated accompanied recitative, well matched to his stated goal of reviving the old tradition of Italian opera buffa.

Ravel fut grand comme un jockey, donc comme Faulkner. Son corps était si léger qu'en 1914, désireux de s'engager, il tenta de persuader les autorités militaires qu'un pareil poids serait justement idéal pour l'aviation. Cette incorporation lui fut refusée, d'ailleurs on l'exempta de toute obligation mais, comme il insistait,on l'affecta sans rire à la conduite des poids lourds…

Monsieur Ravel s'ennuie la nuit sur l'île d'Insomnie. En attendant la belle et grande vague, celle qui l'emportera loin de cette petite île de rien du tout, il pianote un air léger sur son piano à vapeur.
Arrivent alors sur la plage une théière fumante, une délicate tasse chinoise et Gibraltar, un facétieux petit singe-tambour…
