The stage works of Maurice Ravel are as delicate and poised as one could imagine. In the Spanish-shaded L'Heure espagnole, Ravel gives new vitality into the opera buffa by making the comedic element human, and giving the plot poignancy. Ravel wrote clear vocals, harmonic magic, and radiant orchestration. He imbues Cervante's famous character with blue-blooded Spanish swagger, while still giving him a sort of heroic kindness and openness. Ravel's L'Enfant et les sortileges from Lyon can be found on Naxos 8.660336.
