Ravel’s second go at opera, L’Enfant et les sortileges (The Child and the Enchanted Things) clocks in at a compact 45 minutes. Its quirky libretto centers on a surly child who is ultimately transformed through encounters with various animals and inanimate objects magically brought to life. Reputedly, the Broadway musical template of the era may have served as something of a structural model. The composer employs a large orchestra complete with exotic percussion and extensive wind and brass sections. In addition, there are 8 soloists, mixed choir and children’s choir. While there are several instances of genius, this is not Ravel at his greatest. That said, Maestro Slatkin’s affection for and understanding of the music is clearly evident in every bar. The singers are uniformly strong as are the 2 choirs. This version is a good one and complements the classic recordings by Bour, Maazel and Previn. Ma Mere L’Oye (Mother Goose), presented here in its complete ballet edition, is beautifully shaped and paced by Maestro Slatkin. Orchestre National de Lyon offers playing of the greatest subtlety and refinement. Throughout the disc, the lustrous sonics are detailed and three dimensional. Balance and dynamics are naturally rendered.
