Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Ravel's radiantly magical Daphnis et Chloé complete, in a glowing, ecstatic choral performance, with a glorious "Daybreak" and a thrilling closing "Danse générale". Its coupling is Poulenc's witty Les Biches ("girls of independent spirit and virtue"), and its catchily audacious opening trumpet theme and luscious Adagietto are part of a suite full of piquantly affecting nostalgia and sparkle. ...played with spirited insouciance and plangent lyricism.
