    This piece is a mastery of orchestration, and it's great to get the shots of the entire orchestra. The percussion section really shines at the end. The gong had a great first strike but sort of died toward the end; it needs to be struck with full vigor the last three strikes

    The real question is, why didn't they use the organ that is in the back. It sounds much better on the organ

    How amazing, what ELP accomplished with merely 3 men, their "wall of sound" to borrow a phrase, that it took a roomful of highly trained musical professionals to express. (Of course, 95% of the sound came from Keith, not to diminish the great excellence of Greg and Carl.)

    Normally I dislike wide shots (it's often a lazy or amateurish action) but this one is intriguing, watching the shifting flurries of motion. Even at normal playback speed it's like watching time-lapse video. Or how about a time-lapse video of an ant colony. Besides this magnificent sonic expansion of the original, there's a video dimension too.

    I just listened to the Douglas Gamley transcription of the Great Gate of Kiev, made a few choice comments about its superfluity, and now listening to this, back with Ravel, I must say, that no matter the performance, it is an absolute pleasure to hear
    the work in its proper guise as it should be presented.  The details of this performance are not concerning me right now.

    To Jonathon Palmquist – if you listen to the original piano version of this piece, you can see why the conductor had the timpanist make the grace notes more separated, as the timpani takes the color of the lower register of the keyboard in the piece.
