Naxos rattles Berlin Philharmonic
I wonder if John Adams reads the Guardian? In today's edition Andrew Clements reviews two new recordings of Ravel's sublime L'Enfant et les sortilèges. One is from the Berlin Philharmonic under Simon Rattle on EMI, the other from the Nashville Symphony under Alastair Willis on Naxos. The preferred version is the one from Naxos. How frustrating.
