112. Dancing on Love Island? Ravel, Daphnis & Chloé

Bursting full of life, Ravel’s music for this everyday love story of shepherd meets goatherd meets Greek god of nature is dreamy, sensual, and downright thrilling, all delivered in glorious orchestral technicolor. Meet Daphnis & Chloé! Listening time: 25 mins (podcast 9′, music 16′)

Complete performance here played by the Orchestra Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Myung-Whun Chung:
