Notes & Reviews:

Ravel's masterpiece, 'Daphnis et Chloe', was composed for the Ballets Russes and premiered in 1912. Ravel described his sumptuous score, for large orchestra, wind machine and wordless chorus, as "a choreographic symphony in three parts... a vast musical fresco... faithful to the Greece of my dreams." His earliest orchestral work, the "fairy overture" 'Sheherazade' is all that remains of a planned opera based on 'The Thousand and One Nights'. Ravel conducted the premiere in 1899, although the score remained unpublished until 1975.
