Shining Sub

Susanna Mälkki leads the BSO in a program of Ravel, Stravinsky & Debussy [ link ]

Tangentially (via keywords Debussy and arrangement), WCRB played Debussy’s arrangement of Satie’s Gymnopédie last night. Beautiful in its simplicity, of course, and any composer might wish to write something so lovely. This is the recording WCRB always plays, Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St-Martin-in-the-Fields. Strikes me as almost painfully slow (and I’m a fellow likes his Morton Feldman, too). That’s all.
