Ravel: Shéhérazade

This three-song set is equivalent to three scenes from an opera. It paints the actions of the text both in reality and in abstraction, but in its most effective way, it depicts an unyielding longing for something unfathomable or unobtainable.

Ravel’s Shéhérazade sung by Jessye Norman with Colin Davis with the London Symphony
