Maurice Ravel by Maurice Ravel

Book Description

With the premiere in 1908 of "Rapsodie Espagnole, " Ravel's first entirely orchestral composition, the French composer achieved renown as a highly original and imaginative composer. In 1911, he recast the "Mother Goose Suite, " his extremely successful music for piano four-hands, as an orchestral work. Based on five fairy tales among them "Sleeping Beauty," "Tom Thumb," and "Beauty and the Beast" this collection of children's pieces continues to enchant listeners of all ages with its variety of moods, from jubilation to haunting despair. In 1910, more than a decade after its initial appearance as a piano work, Ravel transcribed his evocative "Pavane for a Dead Princess" for orchestra. To this day, it continues to be one of his best-known, most frequently performed compositions.The rich orchestral settings of these three works have made them favorites among concert-goers around the world, ensuring the popularity of this full, authoritative, and inexpensive edition."
