Re: Ravel Daphnis et Chloe--complete ballet

Alas! Chris Howell is correct. The Dorati was actually the first complete recording I ever heard (as a very young man). I remember going to the offices of Mercury in NYC where they sat me down (very graciously) for a listening session. Since large portions of my vinyl collection are currently not accessible, I relied too heavily on memory. If only Dorati had visited the studio once more to give us a stereo version. Incidentally, I do remember not liking the Inghelbrecht.
