    If you want to learn creative but balanced orchestration - put this edition on your christmas gift wishlist! Three amazing works by one outstanding composer of 20th century music. Here you can learn the way of orchestrating for several different ensembles and instrument combinations. The scores is well set, clear, and...

    with a mini french to english glossary list, so english reading students can understand Ravels notations with no doubts of his intentions. The only things negative about this edition is that the pages of the score falls out after re-reading the score over and over again (this is a problem with Dover-publications) and why not print the whole Goose-ballett, instead of just the suite? But, in the end: you get three fantastic pieces of music - for the price of one! Need I say more?

    I absolutely love the Dover version of these amazing works by Ravel. It's like owning the original by Durand!Great print, very clear, legible and true to the original with all of the French notations by Ravel. The size is perfect, much better than the mini scores I am...

    used to.I will look for more Dover scores in the future.
