Ravel's opera L'Enfant et les sortileges captures an imaginative child's world in which the creatures and objects around him come to life. Wittily portrayed in Colette's inventive libretto and by Ravel's meticulous orchestration, furniture, crockery and animals alike are at first provoked by the child's appalling behavior, finally helping him after he bandages the squirrel's paw he had previously pricked with his pen. The unforgettably enchanting Mother Goose translates well-known fairytales into music, including the gently melodic Sleeping Beauty's Pavane, her conversation with the gruffest of beasts, and a final blessing in The Fairy Garden. Leonard Slatkin, music director of the Orchestre National de Lyon and the Detroit Symphony, has made more than 100 recordings that in total have earned him seven Grammy® awards and 64 Grammy® nominations.
