More than novelty.
Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G As someone who has great appreciation of Ravel, I found this recording to be of great interest. Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G I'm primarily interested in the three works not orchestrated by Ravel but by others (excluding the 5 Popular Greek Melodies which Ravel orchestrated with Rothenthal). Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G It is quite an undertaking to orchestrate works by a composer known for his orchestration. Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G Grainger orchestrates 'Valley of the Bells' from Mirriors fairly successfully since his approach is obviously one of 'How I would do it rather than how he would. Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G ' Clearly this is not the approach Ravel would take but it is successful as an orchestration on it's own merrits. Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G Viacava's orchestration of Jeux d'eau is better than the orchestration by Marius Constant and is clearly meant to emulate Ravel's style and method. Ravel: Valley of the Bells; Jeau D'Eau; Piano Concerto in G I think that this is fairly effective and shows some understanding of Ravel as orchestrator. The last of these is the Goosens orchestration of Le gibet. It starts well but the orchestration soon starts to show a lack of the subtle variation that Ravel employed. I wouldn't sink to calling this academic, but it isn't on par with the previous two. As for the remainder of works in this CD, they are slightly above average. There are other recordings out there with better overall performances of these works. This is disappointing to me as I've generally been quite pleased with Geoffrey Simon's work if not overjoyed by it. The cavieat to my review is that I don't have a SACD player so the review is based on the standard CD recording and not the SACD. I therefore cannot address the audiophile aspects of this. If there were a DVD/DTS version of it, I'd have been happy to address this but....
