Customer Reviews for Cole Porter Album: Volume 1 for String Quartet
Location: from Gloucester, UK
April 24, 2009
Good arrangement, bad orchestration
These arrangements of the Cole Porter songs are great and really swing. However, the orchestration gives the bulk of the melodies to the first violin and the other members of the quartet hardly get a look in. In particular the cello part for "I've got you under my skin" consists of repeated phrases for the first 46 bars - almost as bad as Pachelbel's famous canon.
