Notes & Reviews:

'Daphnis et Chloe,' generally regarded as Ravel's masterpiece, is one of the numerous important scores that owe their existence to the famous ballet impresario Sergey Dyagilev, who commissioned new works for his Paris-based troupe. Almost an hour long, 'Daphnis et Chloe' is Ravel's longest work. The music, some of the composer's most passionate, has extraordinarily lush harmonies typical of the impressionist movement. Its diaphanous and intricate orchestration serves to tell the tale of the two lovers in what the composer describes as a "vast musical fresco...faithful to the Greece of my dreams."
