Pierre Monteux's Magnificent Account of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe with the London Symphony Orchestra is one of the Very Best! A proficient and Classically trained violinist, Pierre Monteux, he premiered Stravinsky's Petrushka (1911), Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe (1912), The Rite of Spring (1913), Debussy's Jeux (1913)! On this 180 Gram Audiophile 2LP 45rpm Pressing you'll hear extraordinarily lush harmonies, pointed French phrasing, an absence of sentimentality, and an intuitive feeling for Ravel's meshing of classic-erotic. A Masterpiece for Orchestra!

"Monteux's interpretation fits the piece like a glove. Flowing tempos knit the orchestral fabric together effortlessly into the "choreographic symphony" of the work's subtitle, without stinting on atmosphere or sheer color. The opening is mysterious but not sluggish. Ravel's sunrise reaches a glorious apotheosis, with the choir well-balanced in the mix. The quicker bits have plenty of excitement and glitter." - Classics Today

"From the mysterious, exotic opening of the introduction, Monteux and the LSO capture the lushness and richness of the harmonies with an unbridled sense of French passion. The many different sections are linked through Ravel's subtle and delicate transitions; they achieve a real transparency under Monteux's clear hand... The clarity of the choral singing is excellent -- the frequently subtle changes of pitch, often lost in murkiness in other performances, are gently but clearly emphasized here with taste. Monteux, a violinist by training, compels his LSO string players to play Ravel's harmonics with a real core and edge to the sound, minus the usual French wispiness." - All Music Guide
