Notes & Reviews:

Stephane Deneves recording of Poulenc's Les biches and Stabat Mater marked the conductor's debut with haenssler CLASSIC / SWRmusic. With this CD, he begins recording a series of Maurice Ravel's complete orchestral music. This first CD includes Ravel's finest orchestral pieces.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Deneve's Ravel is romantic, searching, and full of interesting ideas. In La Valse, tempos are on the slow side, and the sound is more blended. It is still clear, and the climaxes are big and broad. Bolero is very stylish. The solos are beautifully played, and it sounds as if Deneve gave his players some latitude in their phrasing. Speaking of Alborada, this is one atmospheric performance, with solid rhythm plus some marked leaps in the faster parts and a very slow. Deneve's romantic Tombeau de Couperin is well done and convincing. The sound is big and open, with a lot of bass. This promises to be a fascinating series.
