RAVEL, M.: Orchestral Works, Vol. 2 - Valses nobles et sentimentales / Gaspard de la nuit (Lyon National Orchestra, Slatkin) (Blu-Ray Audio)

Maurice Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales present a vivid mixture of atmospheric impressionism, intense expression and modernist wit, his fascination with the waltz further explored in La valse, a mysterious evocation of a vanished imperial epoch. Heard here in an orchestration by Marius Constant, Gaspard de la nuit is Ravel’s response to the other-worldly poems of Aloysius Bertrand, and the dance suite Le tombeau de Couperin is a tribute to friends who fell in the war of 1914–18 as well as a great 18th century musical forbear.

Sound format: PCM Stereo / DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
