 Recommendable Ravel October 21, 2012 By Mark Stenroos (Aliso Viejo, CA) See All My Reviews "I must ask your indulgence in reading this review as it appears that ArchivMusic's website has difficulty correctly translating not only diacritical marks, but things as common as quotation marks. Ergo, this review is littered with computer codes where things like ampersands should appear. Sorry. Not my fault. This 14-CD set contains 15-plus hours of Maurice Ravel's works (I believe only the pieces he wrote for the 1900 and 1905 Rome Prize Competitions are omitted). The recordings are all top-notch and drawn for the most part from the Decca and DG catalogs. Universal Classics is fairly spoiled for choice when it comes to this composer, and it's interesting to see what was included in the set and what was not. The solo and 4-hand piano works occupy the first three discs, with the solo works split pretty evenly between Decca recordings by Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and DG recordings by Ivo Pogerelich (his awe-inspiring reading of Gaspard de la nuit), Martha Argerich and Pierre-Laurent Aimard. The 4-handed works are played by the Kontarskys, Pascal & Denise-Francoise Roge and Vladimir & Vovka Ashkenazy, with Ravel's own two-piano version of Debussy's Trois Nocturnes played by Anne Shasby & Richard McMahon (you'll need to provide your own women's chorus for Sirenes.) Decca has gone for recommended recordings here, using the arguably top recordings available to them in the Universal catalog. Sound is generally sumptuous (though the included Jacques Fevrier recordings of "Habanera" and "Entre cloches" are a bit closely miked). The bulk of the orchestral works are represented by Charles Dutoit's outstanding survey with the Montreal Symphony that was recorded by Decca at the start of the digital era. The Daphnis & Chloe from this set has been a top recommendation since its release, and it comes up well here in the latest mastering (1999?) by Decca. The CD features 12 tracks, a much better situation than the single track encoded on the CD when it was initially released. The mantra of going for the best recording available extends to the choice of opera recordings as well: L'enfant et les sortilèges, which is the long-admired 1961 DG recording, and "L'Heure espagnole," also from DG and recorded in 1965. Both works are conducted by Lorin Maazel. While I find this choice logical from the standpoint of including recommended recordings, I find it unadventurous and frustrating from the point of availability. These Maazel recordings are still available in fine, remastered sound in a DG Originals 2-CD set that also features substantial fill ups (I assume the DG Originals mastering is the mastering used for CDs 12 & 13 of this set). One would think that most collectors already own these recordings in that DG Originals release, or in their initial single-CD releases. The frustration comes from the fact that Decca has two "house" recordings of "L'enfant" that they could have opted for instead: the 1954 stereo version by Ansermet and the later digital recording by Charles Dutoit (which was only given wide distribution in the USA when I released it under license through MHS). Both of these recordings are hard to come by in the CD market these days, while the Maazel is readily available. Maybe I'm wrong, but I would think the target market for this 14-CD set isn't the casual listener looking to fill a "composer gap" in one fell swoop - let alone the novice looking for the most-expensive way possible to secure a copy of "Bolero"! -, but the avid collector, who is taking advantage of the completeness of this set to plug a few gaps in their existing collection. I'm not saying Decca should have included Ansermet's mono account of "L'Heure," but I think they could have included Dutoit's "L'enfant" and earned the admiration of collectors, even though the Maazel still wins on points in the overall scheme of things. As vast as are Universal's Ravel holdings, there are gaps when it comes to some of Ravel's esoterica. Those gaps have been plugged by licensing recordings from EMI (CD 14 - "Myrrah," "Alcyone" & "Alyssa," conducted by Michel Plasson. These are the pieces Ravel submitted for Prix de Rome consideration in 1901, 1902 & 1903, respectively) and Naxos/HNH (various songs). Here, the choices come down to pretty much the ones included in this set, though some of the more-popular songs where choice was available are entrusted to well-known artists like Gerard Souzay (Don Quichotte), Felicity Palmer and Cecila Bartoli. A 182-page perfect-bound booklet is enclosed that includes all of the sung texts in the original language (French, Hebrew) with English translations (thank you, Decca!). The CDs are individually housed in sturdy cardboard sleeves from which they exit easily, while the outside clam box is extremely sturdy and laminated, with a spine width of only 1-3/4" that saves quite a bit of room on the shelf. Excellent packaging. A wonderful edition at a very reasonable price!" Report Abuse
