Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    70:48
The impact of Russian and Oriental culture on Ravel’s formative years retained a hold on him throughout his life. His colourfully reorchestrated selections from Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite Antar, with interpolations of his own music, served as the incidental score for a theatre production. They are heard here in their world premiere, revived and reconstructed alongside a 2014 text by Amin Maalouf that symbolizes the romance and chivalric spirit of the subject matter. Leonard Slatkin conducts the Orchestre National de Lyon on this live performance, recorded in 2014, featuring André Dussolier as the narrator. Ravel’s fascination with the exotic is brought together with Debussy’s influence in the ravishing and enduringly popular song cycle Shéhérazade, also captured live, a showcase for mezzo-soprano Isabelle Druet.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
