About

Ravel’s much-loved Mother Goose Suite vividly portrays familiar fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty and Hop-o’-my-Thumb, and is heard here in its expanded ballet version with a scene-setting Prélude. 1920s Paris was a hotbed of creative collaboration, and the children’s ballet L’Éventail de Jeanne (Jean’s Fan) brought together composers including members of Les Six to create a joyous mélange of influence and individuality, from Ferroud’s Stravinsky-tinted Marche to Poulenc’s catchy Pastourelle, and from Ravel’s glorious opening Fanfare to Schmitt’s truly grand Carnival Waltz finale. This is the first recording of the complete L’Éventail de Jeanne to be made by a French orchestra.
