There are few Ravel orchestral compilations - at any price - that could hold a candle to this one. And most of the Mehta material appears on CD for the first time. A wilder 'La Valse', a more erotic 'Daphnis et Chloe with its orgiastic finale you'd be hard-pressed to find! And what a magical finale there is to 'Ma mere l'Oye'. Monteux, legendary for his French music, conducts a gleaming 'Rapsodie Espagnole'.
