Commissioned by the ballet impresario Serge Diaghilev in 1909 to write a score based on the ancient Greek novel Daphnis and Chloe, Maurice Ravel decided to compose 'a huge musical fresco, concerned less with archaism than with faithfulness to the Greece of my dreams'. First performed three years later by the Ballets Russes, ‘Daphnis et Chloé’ had indeed grown into Ravel’s longest work, playing for about an hour and requiring a large orchestra with an extended percussion section, not to mention a choir. Although he did extract two suites from it, the complete ballet score has also entered the concert repertoire. Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Rotterdam Philharmonic, a team with the best possible credentials for realizing the full spectrum of this sumptuous music, perform it here. If Daphnis et Chloé is one of Ravel’s most highly regarded works, his 1899 piano piece ‘Pavane pour une infante défunte’ is one of the most popular. Orchestrated by the composer in 1910 while he was working on Daphnis, its profound melancholy has caught the imagination of listeners ever since, in combination with the poetic title – which was only chosen because of its agreeable sound, however.
