Of course that is a matter of taste.
Ravel once described Boléro as "a 17 minute crescendo,", so conductor Rizzi is a little on the fast side of the spectre. So was Ravel, who recorded the music in 1930 and took 16.10.
The other two conductors named in Reinhart's review, Leonard Slatkin (15.18) and Emmanuel Krivine (13.51) have followed their own ideas of the music, but were definitely in a hurry, according to Ravel's remark.
It can be slower too. Pedro de Freitas Branco once recorded Bolero and took 18.31.
