Ravel: Valley of the Bells

£11.20

Ravel’s status as one of the most popular composers of all time rests to a large extent on the phenomenal success of Bolero (Cala Records-CACDS4027). Yet there is much more to this endlessly intriguing man’s work than the “seventeen minutes of orchestral tissue without music”: childhood fantasy, Spain, the Orient, American jazz, the theater, clockwork toys and all the things mechanical, preoccupied Maurice Ravel throughout his life, and echoes of each can be found in all corners of his music.
