Quote from: Brian on November 07, 2023, 12:59:18 PMAlthough the new corrected edition Wilson prepared sounds very helpful for future orchestras/performers, I could not tell a single difference in this new version. Certainly the changes fall within the usual spectrum of conductor-imposed "ideas." And since Wilson deviates significantly from the "HIP" Monteux version, I don't know how to assess what is "him" and what is the new score.
Quote from: Florestan on November 08, 2023, 02:54:02 AMThe two bold statements seem to me rather mutually exclusive. If you could not tell one single difference, then how does Wilson's version deviate significantly from Monteux's? What am I missing here?
Quote from: ritter on November 08, 2023, 07:43:08 AMI presume he means "textual" vs. "interpretative" deviations...
Quote from: Florestan on November 08, 2023, 07:46:31 AMAh, now I see! As in, Wilson's score deviates significantly from Monteux's, yet there is no audible difference between the two performances, right?
Quote from: atardecer on November 10, 2023, 08:50:38 PMAccording to Hurwitz the John Wilson recording of Daphnis et Chloé is very bad. In fact the worst ever recording of the work, and not just in his opinion. He claims it is objectively bad, and one should avoid it like death!I sampled several of the movements on youtube and found there are some aspects of it I like. I wasn't sufficiently wowed to listen to all of it just now or make a purchase because I already have recordings of this work by Monteux, Dutoit, Boulez and Tortelier and I'm happy with that at the moment. But I don't really get why someone would slam this performance to the extent Hurwitz did this. Just from the movements I listened to I feel his comments about the poor sound quality are exaggerated, and I noticed some interesting things about Wilson's approach I haven't heard in other recordings.
