Notes & Reviews:

Stéphane Denève's Ravel cycle continues to take shape. In this second installment of the complete orchestral music we hear the ballet version of "Ma Mère l'Oye", the early Overture to "Shéhérazade", "Une barque sur l'ocean", "Menuet antique" and "Fanfare pour L'Éventail de Jeanne". Once again Denève proves that he possesses all the requisite sensitivity as a conductor, and when matched with an orchestra of this caliber, the results bring out all the magic and kaleidoscopic orchestral color. Denève and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR) are a dream team in this music and even a show that even after a hundred years, Ravel's scores have not lost their bloom.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
DenFve for the most part coaxes a rich, warm sound from the orchestra, and supports this with slow tempos in movements like the 'PrTlude' and 'Le jardin fTerique' from the full ballet suite of Ma mFre l'Oye.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
DenFve and the Stuttgart orchestra interpret with animation and with persuasive ideas about the music's dramatic rise and fall. The other works, too, testify to DenFve's experience in this music, with colours finely etched in, a fluidity of movement and a real sense that he has his finger firmly on the Ravel pulse.
