Sergey Dyagilev commissioned Ravel to write music for the ballet Daphnis et Chloé with choreography
by Michel Fokine: Daphnis was danced by Nijinsky. This ‘choreographic symphony’, in Ravel’s words, is a
pastoral romance that drew from the composer a succession of beguiling scenes paying tribute as much to
the France of the late eighteenth century as to any Greek setting. The score is masterly, ranging from the
luminous to a Bacchanale, in a musical fresco of unrivalled beauty. Alan Hovhaness’s Meditation on Orpheus
evokes the mystery and charged energy of ancient Greece.
