Об альбоме (сборнике)
One of the all-time greatest Ravel discs now comes in even superior sound quality. Fifty years after date, Charles Munch’s 1955 reading remains nothing less than ideal by its totally spontaneous drive, its unerring sense of colour & atmosphere, while the virtuosic playing of the Boston Symphony is quite simply outstanding. The beautifully balanced sound (always a great asset of these early RCA stereo recordings) is most impressively rendered by the DSD technology. Ravel’s magnificent “choreographic symphony” was the musical preserve of 2 great French conductors, Pierre Monteux & Charles Munch. Munch recorded the work twice for RCA, & this is the earlier of his 2 versions. Neither is better than the other. To the composer’s customary brilliance of sound, Munch added an almost physical urgency & impact. Listening to this colorful performance, you can really hear stuff happening from one moment to the next. The actual plot is irrelevant to your enjoyment. What stays with you is a sense of movement, of thrills & chills on the way to a gloriously happy ending. — David Hurwitz The sensuous appeal of this version of the wonderfully evocative & very French ballet score has probably never been surpassed. In fact, I would call this the very best of the 6 or so Living Stereo SACDs I have heard so far. John Pfeiffer produced it in 1955, well before the introduction of the stereodisc. It was recorded 2-channels only, but still easily beats out the LP & standard CD versions, & doesn’t seem to suffer in comparison to the other Living Stereo 3-channel SACDs. The original LP was quite an achievement since it runs nearly 55 minutes, & after about 40 minutes total things were getting dicey at maintaining good sound when mastering an LP… audaud.com
