Ravel: Orchestral Works Vol. 1 (Leonard Slatkin / Orchestre National de Lyon) (Naxos: 8.572887)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Ravel orchestrated his piano pieces Alborada del gracioso and Pavane pour une infant défunte to great effect; the former gains in suggestive colour, and the latter evokes nostalgic pathos. Another orchestrated work is the Menuet antique, which is redolent of old French dance forms Rapsodie espagnole, Ravel's first major orchestral work, shimmers with expectancy and bursts into Spanish dance rhythms, themes he pursued in Pièce en forme de habanera. His earliest orchestral work, the 'fairy overture' Shéhérazade, is all that remains of a planned opera based on The Thousand and One Nights. The famous Boléro, an 'orchestrated crescendo' of undimmed power, has proved one of the most popular works in all classical music.

Internationally renowned conductor Leonard Slatkin was recently named Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lyon, beginning with the 2011-2012 season. He completed his twelfth and final season as Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra in June 2008, and began his tenure as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in the 2008-2009 season. Slatkin continues as Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
