This is indeed a very good publication of some very important works by Ravel. Certainly the price alone
justifies the purchase, considering Durand editions are still nearly 50% or higher in price. The edition
does however, through no fault of Dover because it is a reprint, present some notational flaws that have
not been corrected. Nancy Bricard has published a much more authoritative and instructive edition for
Alfred Masterworks, for instance of Gaspard de la Nuit. Correcting many of the most obvious of errors.
The Dover edition is still reliable, but one must warn that a proper performance dictates cross-reference
with other editions.
