Jean Morel conducts the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra. Superb low end, a rich, robust and vibrant-sounding album. Great midrange life and transparency. Orchestrations of Albeniz' incomparable Iberia. Double-basses are extremely well-pitched and dynamic, a characteristic of the RCA Paris recordings. The Rapsodie espagnole that fills out side four is a humdinger.

Recorded in La Maison de la Chimie (Paris)

Reviewer: Dace Gisclard
I gave the Australian Eloquence CD's of the Albeniz and Ravel a rave review on AMAZON, only to be dismayed when another reviewer pointed out that the stereo channels of the tracks played by the Paris Conservatoire were REVERSED! Thankfully, that problem has been corrected here, and the remastered sound is terrific. The only remaining fly in the ointment is that these Analogue Productions SACD's retain the incorrect ordering of the movements as it was on the RCA LP's--a relatively minor issue--that's what the programming feature is for!

The flawed Eloquence CD's have been discontinued, and are now (6/16/22) selling for astronomical prices. An inquiry to Eloquence yielded the information that their set is OOP, and they have no intention of issuing corrected copies. At present, this AP set is a collector's best bet for this much-sought-after legendary recording, and is likely to remain so. GRAB it while the price is still reasonable.
