The beginning of collaboration between ZZT, Emmanuel Krivine and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, with an exceptional guest: Karine Deshayes.
This disc brings together some of Maurice Ravel's most popular scores, in particular the Bolero, and Karine Deshayes gives a highly moving interpretation of Shéhérazade, in the tradition of the great Régine Crespin, which the latter had mentioned herself.

“Krivine draws magnificent sounds from the orchestra and I particularly warm to his determination that the full range of Ravel's dynamics shall be heard - pianissimos are mysterious, fortissimos blazing.”
“There is nothing unusual in the choice of works for this portmanteau CD of central Ravel but Emmanuel Krivine elicits performances of appropriately shimmering sheen and animation from the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg...Without necessarily making you sit up and marvel at the extraordinary originality and daring of Bolero and La valse, Krivine and the orchestra do invest them with a good deal of character”
