French Impressionist composer Maurice Ravel was a master of orchestral textures and effects. This 3CD set brings
together his major works for orchestra in performances by the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under Armin Jordan.
They are joined by Francois-Rene Duchable for the two piano concertos. Violinist Pierre Amoyal plays the virtuosic, gipsy coloured music of Tzigane, while soprano Rachel Yakar evokes the sensuous exoticism of Ravel’s song cycle Scherezade.
