4.0 excellentBedex | January 29th 23

Kinda hit and miss symphonie chorographique (read:orchestral storytelling) from Ravel. When it hits, it hits hard. The use of voices in the introductions to the first and seconds parts (which, for the first partie, includes the second track too) create a sense of mysterious wonder that I love and that you get from some of the best movie soundtracks. The third part as a whole, though its end goes a bit intense, is also masterful in its story telling ability. Combined with the visions of a flock of bird going crazy outside, it really transported me to a fantastic place for a good chunk of time there. Miss, because the bulk of the first two Parties is kind of less compelling to me - idk if it was listening conditions, but it kind of just happened in the background for me, and without fail when I was brought back to the piece, it was because the introduction to a new Partie started - with the exception of the third partie which again is compelling in full. Jammed the Boulez 1995 Berliner Philarmoniker version. 3.8
