Leonard Slatkin is an exceptionally versatile conductor, but it is perhaps in French repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries that he feels most comfortable. The singers in Ravel's exquisitely formed little comic opera L'Heure espagnole, complete with cheating lovers hidden inside grandfather's clocks carried up and down stairs, are all entirely appropriate and admirably clear, but it is really Slatkin who's the star here, right from the "Introduction" that's so artfully linked to what follows. Ravel here cultivates a kind of updated accompanied recitative, well matched to his stated goal of reviving the old tradition of Italian opera buffa.

This venerable recording by the Italian Quartet from 1965 was, for many years, the standard reference copy of both works either individually or as a coupling. One of the considerable virtues of this group of players was that they could always be relied upon to play in tune and to play with musicianship. The competition was not so strong as it is today as many of the alternative groups simply could not deliver accuracy in tuning (or even worse, the notes). This was rarely commented upon in review magazines at the time, a source of complete bemusement for me, but as one who was expected to play in tune I found listening to string chamber music almost beyond bearing for much of the time - except for this group.

Ravel fut grand comme un jockey, donc comme Faulkner. Son corps était si léger qu'en 1914, désireux de s'engager, il tenta de persuader les autorités militaires qu'un pareil poids serait justement idéal pour l'aviation. Cette incorporation lui fut refusée, d'ailleurs on l'exempta de toute obligation mais, comme il insistait,on l'affecta sans rire à la conduite des poids lourds…

Monsieur Ravel s'ennuie la nuit sur l'île d'Insomnie. En attendant la belle et grande vague, celle qui l'emportera loin de cette petite île de rien du tout, il pianote un air léger sur son piano à vapeur.
Arrivent alors sur la plage une théière fumante, une délicate tasse chinoise et Gibraltar, un facétieux petit singe-tambour…

Elegante ventiquattr'ore su ventiquattro e inaccessibile, laconico e gelidamente cortese, il protagonista di questo romanzo potrebbe sembrare una maschera - o un enigma. Eppure è un personaggio che affascina. Forse per il suo raffinato distacco. Forse per la casa minuscola e complicata in cui vive non lontano da Parigi, affollata com'è di miniature d'ogni sorta, statuette e ninnoli, carillon e giocattoli a molla. O forse perché è Ravel, uno dei musicisti più celebri al mondo. Jean Echenoz ridà vita all'artista in un romanzo partecipe e nonchalant, indiavolato e audace come un brano jazz.
