Maazel recorded Ravel's enchanting chamber opera with all-French forces in 1960, and everything works magically. The sonics are perfectly bright and detailed, the singing is dramatic and committed, the pacing is perfect.

It's hard to believe that Mazzel could produce such witty yet touching conducting. We are ever so delicately poised in Ravel's shadings of childhood melancholy, adult sophistication, comic pantomime and solemn whimsy. If you have heard other versions of Ravel's little masterpiece, you may dismiss it as slsightly twee and precious, but here the travails and come-uppance of a spoiled brat are treated with seriousness and empathy, not preciousness. This performance is very touching and lovely to listen to at every moment.
