Gloriously spectacular, yet exquisitely subtle, the orchestral music of Ravel requires players who can render its iridescent colors and intoxicating rhythms with both exuberance and accuracy. The conductor, meanwhile, must define its characteristic interplay of sensuality and delicacy, exhilaration and restraint, sentiment and irony. Here, in five of Ravel’s best-loved scores, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Riccardo Muti prove masterly in capturing the composer’s spirit and in evoking his exotic worlds.
