Ravel collaborated with some of the leading choreographers and impresarios of his day including Fokine, Diaghilev and Nijinsky, though not always in happy circumstances. But the musical results were characteristically immaculate and include some of Ravel's most popular works. Ravel specialist Deborah Mawer joins Katie to introduce Mother Goose, Valses nobles et sentimentales, La Valse and the full-length ballet Daphnis and Chloe, Ravel's longest work.
