Brian Wilson Download Roundup
MusicWeb International, June 2011

This is the original small-orchestral ballet score for the Ballets Russes from which Schmitt later excerpted the better-known Suite…and the version for piano (Naxos 8.572194). It followed hard on the heels of Richard Strauss’s opera…The debt to that work and to Stravinsky’s The Firebird is very apparent—more so than in the Suite. It’s all well worth hearing in this, the only recording to the best of my knowledge. The performance does justice to the music and the recording (ex-Marco Polo) sounds well in mp3.

I must admit to liking Salomé in either version a good deal more than Psalm 47…so there are definite attractions for me in the Naxos recording of the complete score…
