What is it with this latest craze of re-arranging perfectly good arrangements? Mr Bram Gay seems to of become the master of it with his pointless re working of Les Preludes more recently the original arrangement of The Magic flute seems to of been unnecessarily messed with and of cause there was the absolutely ridiculous transposing of a band masterpiece the Seven Suite (obviously Mr Gay was aware of things about scoring Elgar wasn't!!! ;-) The Seven Suite in particular was ruined by turning what was a fabulously dramatic and morose piece that had a touch of the cotton mills and mine shafts about it into a fairly jolly little romp. Wouldn't it be better for a genius of Mr Gays standard to score purely original arrangements thus keeping the works of other arrangers sacrosanct and unblemished? In fact, the cynic in me would have to suggest this policy is akin to football clubs releasing 5 replica kits a season.
