Описание: Considered among the most original and influential composers of the 20th century, Maurice Ravel played a decisive role in the history of modern French music -- a role that continues to be examined by students exploring the roots of musical style in our time. An internationally recognized authority on the life and works of Ravel, editor Arbie Orenstein captures the essence of this enigmatic man through his own words, both written and spoken. This outstanding compilation of articles by Ravel (who was a brilliant critic) features reviews, interviews, and some 350 letters -- most of which are published here for the first time in English -- from Cocteau, Colette, de Falla, Richard Strauss, Stravinsky, and other major figures of the era.

Ravel originally conceived of his "choreographic poem" La Valse (The Waltz) as a tribute to Johann Strauss and "a sort of apotheosis of the Viennese waltz." But this is a waltz far removed from the urbane gaiety of old Vienna. A masterpiece of lush and brilliant orchestration, it is a work of considerable emotional depth in which the initial series of elegant waltzes are transformed into what Ravel describes as "a fantastic and fatal whirling" loading to a powerful, turbulent climax. Now musicians, music students, conductors -- any music lover -- can study La Valse in this high-quality edition, reproduced from the authoritative Durand original.

Reproduced here from the original French edition, the score appears with rehearsal-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
Описание: Maurice Ravel's unparalleled flair for orchestration is showcased in his masterful arrangement of his own piano showpiece, "Alborada del Gracioso, " a vibrant, Spanish-influenced work that celebrates his Basque heritage. It appears here with the "Prelude" and "Danse du Rouet," written especially for the ballet version of "Ma Mere la Oye."
The consummate craftsmanship, elegance, and originality of Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) define this collection of masterly compositions for the piano. Here, in one volume are Ma m re l'Oye ("Mother Goose"), Valse nobles et sentimentales, Le Tombeau de Couperin, and three shorter pieces for piano: Pr lude, A la mani re de Borodine (Valse, ) and A la mani re de Emmanuel Chabrier. Ravel's own piano transcription of his world-famous La Valse completes this attractive edition of the master's most famous compositions. Intermediate and advanced pianists will welcome this superb compilation of piano classics, reproduced from authoritative French sources. Notes throughout introduce the works, their origins, and their context within the composer's output.
Although the moods may vary throughout these evocative works, the elegance and subtly shifting energies of their musical language could only be those of Maurice Ravel. To study them in this full-score edition is to become more fully aware not only of his great originality but also of the constant striving for perfection of form and style that prompted Stravinsky to compare him admiringly to "the most perfect of Swiss watchmakers." The Rapsodie Espagnole was Ravel's first entirely orchestral composition. A work whose exotic fantasy and subtle craftsmanship clearly express Ravel's distinctive musical personality, it was first performed publicly at the Th tre du Ch let in Paris in 1908, confirming the young composer's reputation as an orchestral poet of scintillating originality. In 1911 Ravel re-created for orchestra his highly successful composition for two pianos, the Mother Goose Suite, a truly magical work whose moods range from haunting desolation to tender exaltation. Similarly, Ravel recast his brilliant 1911 piano composition Valses Nobles et Sentimentales as an orchestral score in 1912 (a ballet based on its premiere that year in Paris) and arranged his evocative 1899 piano work Pavane for a Dead Princess for orchestra in 1910. The rich orchestral settings of all four works have made them popular favorites on concert stages worldwide. This superbly prepared edition brings together in one volume authoritative full scores of these four works, reprinted from original French editions.

"Ravel is one of the rare French composers who have left so strong an imprint on their art that music after them can never be the same." -- Alexis Roland-Manuel. Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) ranks as one of the most original French composers of his time, a consummate craftsman who continually sought perfection of form and style, and whose unique harmonic language was unmistakably his own. Along with Debussy, he stands in the front rank of great modern composers for the piano and his piano music includes a number of masterpieces considered vital to the repertoire of any serious pianist. This handsome, affordable volume reprints a rich selection of his compositions: "Pavane pour une infante d funte," "Jeux d'eau," "Sonatine," "Miroirs," "Menuet antique," "Menuet sur le nom d'Haydn," "Gaspard de la nuit," and more. From the dazzling "Jeux d'eau," whose inventiveness and harmonic ingenuity opened a whole new era in sound, to the beloved "Pavane pour une infante d funte," to the suite "Gaspard de la nuit," music of legendary difficulty that every serious pianist eventually attempts, the piano music of Ravel is among the most recorded and performed in the repertoire. This inexpensive Dover edition makes that music available, at a reasonable price, to pianists who wish to play and study the works of a composer in the vanguard of "the new order of post-Lisztian piano writing."
Few composers of the 20th century have wielded more influence in the musical world than the two "impressionist" masters represented in this volume. Such composers as Webern, Bart k, Var se, Messianen, and even John Cage owe a debt to Debussy's innovations in harmony, coloring, and psychological penetration. Similarly, Ravel's achievements in pianistic style, sophisticated harmonies, and bold experiments with form had a profound effect on both contemporary and later musicians. Each composer wrote only one string quartet, but by virtue of their individuality, unique interpretations of the medium and delicate and subtle beauties, both compositions enjoy a special place in the chamber music repertoire. This attractive, high-quality volume, based on authoritative French editions, brings both influential masterpieces together in one inexpensive resource. Clearly printed and sturdily bound for long life on the music stand, this book will enable musicians and music lovers to study, compare, and delight in two landmarks of the string quartet genre.
