 Le Tombeau de Ravel

I was wondering if anyone has any recordings of this piece by Arthur Benjamin for clarinet or viola. How can I order it?

I have a recording of it.

"Bagatelles and Waltzes" Patricia Shands is the clarinetist. It also includes the Finzi "Five Bagatelles", the Lutoslawski "Dance Preludes", the "Hillandale Waltzes" by Babin and the Arnold "Sonatina".

Round Top Records RTR 116/861/6

I got mine through CDNOW.

Good performances. I think she brings a lot to the music, although I'd still like to hear more. My opinion is that the her interpretation of the Benjamin has room for more life to be put into it. I don't have the music for it so maybe I shouldn't be so hasty to say that.

I never really cared for the Finzi. Well, someone on the board here convinced me to think differently. I have listened to them and I have been converted to a lover of the middle three. They _are_ lovely.

There is a lot of energy in all the performances. She does not give as much "variance" to the music as Mr Neidich does in his CD I bought at the same time doing the Weber Concertos, Concertino and Rossini Intro, Theme & Variations. But that's fine with me. The technique is there and her tone is pleasing to my ears, on the darker side.

Good luck with it.
