Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A little festival" - that's how Mirko Weber concluded his review of the CD version of this recording in "Die Zeit". He was delighted with how Carlo Rizzi and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra took pleasure in relishing all the fine details.

Well, here comes the big festival now, at least for vinyl fans. Never before, we dare to predict, has Bolero sounded as good on an LP as it does here. How is that possible? It's amazingly simple: place the needle in the groove on the inside, instead of, as is customary, on the outside. As the needle slowly wanders outwards, the ability of the record player becomes better able, along with the increased tension in the music, to scan ever higher volumes.

The reverse side is graced by Ravel's refined sister-piece to Bolero, La valse.
