I'm thinking of
- On Wenlock Edge - doesn't the orchestral version sound rather bloated?
- Souvenir de Florence - the version for string orchestra is lovely but so is the original Sextet,
- Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle - again the chamber version is much more effective.
Do you agree? Can you think of examples where more really is more?
