Charles Munch was the opposite of the "intellectual" school of French
conductors, as typified by Pierre Boulez. He was a completely spontaneous
artist, which is what made him the great Berlioz conductor of our time, and
literally anything could happen when he got up onto the podium. It follows then,
that his Ravel is not going to be the sort of hyper-precise, calculated sort of
interpretation that many fans of the composer expect, but it will be exciting as
hell. These three pieces are shrewdly chosen; they are the composer's most
extrovert works, and Munch pulls out all of the stops in his performances of
them. A classic recording, and a great memento of a unique artist.
