A magical Ravel concert with Simon Rattle

This Ravel concert from September 2008 takes listeners through fantastic magical realms. Sir Simon Rattle first conducts the ballet music Ma Mère l’Oye (Mother Goose), a collection of delicate fairy tale scenes. The second part of the concert features the charming children’s opera L’Enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and the Spells), interpreted by an outstanding ensemble of soloists, with Magdalena Kožená in the leading role.
