Excelente disco de Ernest Ansermet donde nos ofrece alguna de sus especialidades.

Ravel: Boléro, La Valse 

Honegger: “Pacific 231” 

Dukas: “L'Apprenti sorcier”

Ernest Ansermet, director

Orquesta de la Suisse Romande

Grabado en abril de 1963 en la Victoria Hall en Ginebra

El Boleo de Ravel es una de las obras más interpretadas, por ello existen grandes grabaciones de esta obra; en mi opinión esta versión de Ansermet merece un lugar entre las mejores. Los complementos son ideales, empezando por Honegger, una versión deslumbrante, y por Dukas, con un Apprenti mágico.

Among the innumerable recordings of Maurice Ravel’s Boléro, the present one made by DECCA with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under Ernest Ansermet is of particular note. The impressive mounting crescendo over an ostinato bass, leading through the work from the very first bar right up to the last note, goes hand in hand with ever increasing intensity and excitement and hardly permits the listener to draw a breath. As in the Boléro, Ravel’s La Valse, a choreographed poem for orchestra composed in 1920, is based on a single rhythmic idea, the Viennese waltz, which lends the work increasing impetus throughout the course of the music.
Although Arthur Honegger’s Pacific 231, composed in 1923 and dedicated to Ernest Ansermet, is more modern and has a more complex structure, here too a great arc of tension determines the progress of the music until shortly before the end. The orchestra accelerates in tempo and then decelerates – due to the motivic writing – towards the end thus evoking the sound of a locomotive: the Pacific 231 namely.
The great success of the first performance of Paul Dukas’s L'Apprenti sorcier (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) in 1897, a scherzo composed in 1895 and based on a ballad by Goethe, certainly comes as no surprise when one listens to this recording by the OSR under Ansermet. The composition is filled with a wealth of surprising moments which are presented here with exactitude and subtlety in even the tiniest detail.
