I just listened to GMN's webcast of The Mainly Mozart Orchestra doing Wagner's original chamber version of Siegried Idyll. I prefer it to Wagner's subsequent score for full orchestra.

Sometimes less is more. I like Copland's original scoring of Appalachian Spring for thirteen instruments. Not to say that the full-orchestra versions of either have no place.

A few years ago I had the pleasure of hearing James Levine conduct members of the Met orchestra in the chamber version in a small church. It was wonderful. Richard Kapp's recording on his Essay label is fabulous.

Less is more in some cases, like in Strauss` "Metamorphosen" for string septet, and in Schönbergs "Verklärte Nacht" for string sextet. The intimacy of these chamber versions (written by the composer himself, of course), is something special, and the lines in the music are clearer, when played by solo instruments.

I agree, Nils. You might want to check out GMN's webcast of David Atherton conducting Arnold Schoenberg's chamber arrangement of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde.
