  • January 26, 2013 excellent edition

    Grateful for the excellent quality of this edition which makes a big difference in the pleasure of performance. I had been previously using the copy published by Edwards B. Marks Music - fingering of Paolo Gallico- which is of inferior quality.

  • July 22, 2011 Pavane pour une infante défunte

    A somewhat startling arrangement signaling a change in the current of impressionism to an art form that is uniquely 20th century. In other words, no going back after this! Clearly expressive and written for a new generation, Ravel brings out a playfulness in a piece that would ordinarily be approached...

    as a dirge, but includes a celebratory application in spite of the funereal subject matter. Exquisite is the only way to describe the piece!

    Beautiful piece of music. First movement easy, gets progressively more difficult.

    NOT AN EASY PIECE TO PLAY BY ANY MEANS, BUT IF YOU ARE AT AN INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED LEVEL, YOU CAN DO IT JUSTICE.

  • September 07, 2008 Superb arrangement; vital composer's notes

    From the title & having heard the "Pavane" played with extreme melancholy, I played it that way myself the first time. Then I read Ravel's notes saying the piece should NOT be funereal & only slightly melancholy. Thereafter, I played it per his instructions & came to a whole new understanding & appreciation...

    of this priceless piece.
