Podcast: A fascination with sound: Ravel’s spellbinding works for the stage.
October 2, 2015
Fantasy, fairy tales and Maurice Ravel’s flair for orchestral colour are all to the fore in this new release of two examples of the composer’s music for the stage—the scores for his opera L’Enfant et les sortilèges and his ballet Ma mère l’Oye. This highly imaginative music, projected through a childlike lens, is instantly attractive to both the young and the young-at-heart. Simultaneously simple and complex, entrancing and seductive, music doesn’t come more magical than this.
