A Romantic Music Masterpiece!
The complete Bolero is beautifully arranged and superbly recorded at a mellow pace to help create a meditative mood. "We used all the original instruments as written by Ravel for the traditional sections and added some very tasteful original interludes. The difference in our approach was to play keyboard sampled classical and pre-classical instruments. When the music was slowed down and performed with these very clear digital instruments, we were pleasantly surprised to hear that Ravel had created music that seemed to move in and out like a ever changing, deep beautiful river. The hypnotic repeating theme became more transparent, with the genius of the composition become clearer and smoother. The skillfully layered instruments create sounds that were surely unheard at the time the music was written, but moreover the dreamy layered textures of sound are even today original and capture a trance-like dance that will create a most mellow and introspective mood."
