About

This third volume of the complete orchestral works by the great French composer Maurice Ravel features his music for the ballet Daphnis et Chloť, his longest work, written for Sergei Diaghalevís Ballets Russes. The company gave the first performance in 1912. Ravel depicted the characters in the story with great musical delicacy, and the Stuttgart Orchestra reflects this through the attention it gives to the scoreís finest nuances. Ravel secures scintillating effects from the large percussion section that he uses, a clear nod to ancient music.

The Valses nobles et sentimentales were composed at the same time as the ballet, which makes it an appropriate coupling. The version for piano, clearly linked to Franz Schubertís similarly named waltzes, was published in 1911, with the orchestral version following one year later. Again the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra gives a thrilling, first-class interpretation.

The first two volumes in this series received glowing critical reviews.
