RAVEL
Orchestral Music Vol 1 (Incl Bolero & La Valse)
Boston Symphony Orchestra / Seiji Ozawa

[ DG ABC Eloquence / CD ]

Release Date: Wednesday 1 March 2006

The sheer energy and sense of colour, the acuity of Ozawa and the Bostonians response to every shifting mood, is tantalising.

Seiji Ozawa's magnificent Ravel recordings for DG were made in the 1970s and issued as a 3CD set. They have long been out of the catalogue and are now reissued individually and at budget price on Australian Eloquence. The sheer energy and sense of colour, the acuity of Ozawa and the Bostonians response to every shifting mood, is tantalising. Volume 1 includes the popular Boléro and Pavane, a near-orgasmic reading of La Valse, and the composer's own orchestrations of three of his piano pieces.

Tracks:

Boléro
Une Barque sue l'ocean
Menuet antique
Alborado del gracioso
Pavane pour une infante défunte
La Valse
