Ravel: Intimate Masterpieces

Ravel: Intimate Masterpieces

An outstanding lineup of musicians uncovers the quiet rebellion of Maurice Ravel in Intimate Masterpieces, a collection of key chamber works by the iconic French composer due out in October on Oberlin Music, the commercial label of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
The vision of Oberlin faculty harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, Intimate Masterpieces features performances by a wide range of accomplished musicians with ties to Oberlin: faculty members Kondonassis, Alexa Still (flute), and Richard Hawkins (clarinet); alumni soprano Ellie Dehn and pianist Spencer Myer; and the Jupiter Quartet, Oberlin’s artists in residence.
Intimate Masterpieces offers a remarkable portrait of Ravel. Through four chamber works—Introduction et Allegro (1905), String Quartet in F Major (1903), Chansons madécasses (1926), and Cinq mélodies populaires grecques (1906)—he is depicted as an irrepressible independent musical voice trying to navigate the deeply polarized decades of the early 20th century.

OBERLIN MUSIC, founded in 2007, is the commercial label of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Its purpose is to promote the artistic ideals and superlative talent of Oberlin’s faculty and students, on campus and on tour. In 2010, the conservatory opened Clonick Hall, a superior recording facility dedicated to capturing studio sessions in the heart of the conservatory. Oberlin Music titles are available on traditional CD as well as on digital music channels worldwide. For more information, visit www.oberlin.edu/oberlinmusic.
