Academy Of St. Martin-In-The-Fields Under Neville Marriner, Bolero
2005 | Label: haenssler CLASSIC

A dedicated erotomaniac could do far worse than to download eMusic's entire Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) collection. Everything dude touched turned to sex — even the deceptively-titled Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose). Like most of the other works on this all-Ravel romp from Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, that ballet radiates subtle sensuality.

The rhythm of the grace notes at the beginning of Tombeau isn't quite right; they are being played too close to triplets. I thought a few of the Mother Goose movements were a tad on the slow side, as was the Rigaudon. (I think if I could have given 3 1/2 stars that would have been more accurate.)

A Little Brassy

Rodenstein

I've been searching for a Bolero that has no tape hiss. Downloaded this one because of the date to see if it was a good recording. The recording is ok starts a little too quiet to be heard at normal volume, but that is the nature of the piece. I didn't like the brassy treatment done in Bolero, it gave it more of a pops feel than classical, however it is an interesting version of it. It is annoying that Bolero gets lumped into "Booty-Call" lists, only an idiot needs music to enhance such moments, and a worse idiot is that one who follows a stupid list.
