Maurice Ravel

March 7, 1875 - December 28, 1937
born in Ciboure, Basses-Pyrénées, France, composed during the Modern period
French composer Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), along with Claude Debussy, was a prime exemplar of Impressionism, one of the most significant and influential musical movements of the 20th century. A meticulous craftsman and unsurpassed orchestrator, Ravel created music notable for its luminous and evocative use of tone color and for the clarity and elegance of its form. His best-known works include the ballet Daphnis et Chloé, the orchestral piece La Valse, the piano pieces Jeux d'eaux and Gaspard de la nuit, and the String Quartet. His Boléro is one of the most familiar and frequently performed orchestral compositions of the 20th century. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

I fell in love with this piece the first time I heard! I still love it over and over and over and over. It touches my soul! Plus, it reminds me of Benny and June the movie with Johnny Depp.

With all the information here on this page, you would think they would leave enough to put the full title of the piece were hearing.

Oddly, Ravel wasn't crazy about this piece. Later in life he was disappointed that it turned out to be his most popular work.

Every time I hear this music, it reminds me of the exquisite performance of the English ice dancers Torvill and Dean to this piece of music in the 1984 Olympics

One of the most spectacular pieces of music and annimation I've ever seen was a claymation productoion of Darwin's theory of evolution set to Ravel's Bolero. . . absolutely stunning!!!

Great piece. But as I've been at my laptop for 3+ hours desiring great classical music, this very same selection has come up 4x. What does this say about Pandora's outreach to music lovers with different tastes, than the prime demographic?

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you do not post this comment on at-least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this at- least 5 songs in at-least 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.you will get k.

Ravel is awesome. Probably one of the masters of orchestratio n , right up there with the best of them. But seriously, that ancestry-dot - c o m commercial has just beat this pizzicato string quartet into the ground. Friggin ads...

about Bolero: more of an experiment -- though a truly beguiling one -- than a fully formed piece of music. As Ravel himself said of it, C'est une blague - it's a prank.

Ravel also did the best known orchestratio n of Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition. Master craftsman and artist he was. Pavane pour une Infante Defunte has that wonderful delicate horn solo...

Maurice Ravel is among my favorite composers and this Sonatine is a great example of his elegant style. Check out Le Tombeau de Couperin.

Piano Concerto in G major - wonderful piece. Do yourself a favor and listen to Herbie Hancock's performance of this on his Gershwin album.

One of my favorite, one of the few songs I know that can make you melancholy and happy at the same time

I just really discovered Chopin recently. Like Mozart's prolific 35 years Choplin only had 39 years of his absolute genius inwhich he left us an increadably bueatyful body of work. You don't get through it with out a hankie....or two...or three...a box. Imbarrasing. DMB

Art has a frequentcy. Much of contemporary art is course, ragged, harsh and unlovely. Or it can be high, fine, aestetic and bueatyful. The human spirit is as well a vibration level that finds harmony or discord with art. It's what you are in harmony with and do or don't find affinity and agreement in. I'm resonating. How about you?

Maurice Ravel, an absolute legacy of aestetics. I just waiting for his Bolero. The one in my head is getting a little worn. DMB

As a kid, Ravel's Sonatine for piano was the most beautiful music I had heard. It is so disarmingly innocent, and pure. I must still be a kid, Sonatine is still a favorite along with Ravel's song cycle Sheherazade and his Piano Trio.

I remember when I first bought a Ravel's disc. featuring the Bolero, I must have played it continuosly for a season. Let me just add,also, that when I first bought John Coltrane's A Love Supreme I did the same. Gracias Meastros. Genius has no color and cares not what medium it performs on.

Evocative and luscious, yet also refined and elegant - the unique combination that is Ravel.

I finally learned Ondine! Wow. Now if I go finish Gaspard and then go on to Alborada del Gracioso, which is--IMHO--hi s masterpiece for piano. What an artist. Without rival!

And, oh yes, God Bless you, Meastro Faure, for all you gave , and all you gave Ravel...the perfect springboard, you, for all that was to come!

For his solo piano, there are simply no words, and yet I long to go on and on! For Le Tombeau, for Minuet Antigue, for them all, Ravel, I thank and adore you with all my heart! In heaven we finally shall meet...

Bill McLaughlin has done several shows on Ravel on his "Exploring Music" that I listen to on NPR.
In addition to being very thin, the bio here neglects to share that in addition to his genius, Ravel was a humble, generous and kind colleague to any and all that came to him.
Also, I just caught the magical "L'enfant est les Sortileges" performed on Classical TV. Geez I love internet TV and radio!

Listening to Daphnis and Chloe with memories of having played on the "orchestra only" version of this piece with San Francisco Youth Symphony. Yay! Beautiful music!

I agree with Robert Bonfante. I bought an conductor's full score of Daphnis and Chloe to learn how to orchestrate.

Ravel,if we had composers dueling with music and instruments instead of wars with weapons, Ravel would be herr feldmarshall .
