New "Soldier'S Tale"

New "Soldier'S Tale"

A new version of the Suite from The Soldier's Tale is quite superior to the composer's earlier release (also Philips) for its greater clarity. The interpretation (or is it merely the technician?) of the new version emphasises the violin and double bass. I must confess, though, to preferring the dramatic percussion finish of the earlier version to the more subdued triumph of the new Devil.
