Really terrific work Jay, a very balanced mix and wonderfully colorful orchestration. I'll bet you learned a tremendous amount doing this project.

Really impressive musicality, especially the dynamics, and the fast repetitions.

Always thought it was strange how music history classes & books typically devote just a chapter to the French Impressionists. They were all, each geniuses, and so influential on what orchestras do today.

Great work @JBacal as is always the case with your work. The midi-performance is fabulous and the mix is perfect. The woodwind work is especially good. Brass and strings are also good, but the woodwinds just really shine in this.

I am assuming you stayed with all VSL. Which strings library?

And on film music as well, like Debussy’s influence on Herrmann, for eg.

Ravel is a genius at orchestration.
Your rendition is beautiful captures the spirit of the piece.
The dynamics are really well balanced, and the runs are excellent and perfectly judged.
I also like the ambience levels.
It must have been such a sense of achievement to complete!
Thank you for sharing,
Rudi

Stephen Malinowski is a talented musician and computer whiz with a YouTube channel devoted to innovative ways of visualizing music. He just did a visualization of my Ravel performance. Perhaps a few of you will find it interesting.
