Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. Decca is releasing their greatest recordings on vinyl and all are mastered at Abbey Road Studios from original analog tapes and pressed on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl by Optimal. This release features Ernest Ansermet and l'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Ravel's complete ballet, Daphnis et Chloé. 'Every details of Ravel's masterpiece seems to speak with the full panoply of French wind coloring and an utterly idiomatic sense of rhapsodic ecstasy that can't be matched." (Gramophone). Daphnis et Chloé is a ballet in one act and three scenes by Maurice Ravel described as a "symphonie choréographique" (choreographic symphony). The scenario was adapted by Michel Fokine from an eponymous romance by the Greek writer Longus thought to date from around the 2nd century AD.
