Composer Information

Maurice Ravel was a French composer known especially for his melodies, orchestral and instrumental textures and effects. Along with Claude Debussy, he was one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music. Much of his piano music, chamber music, vocal music and orchestral music has entered the standard concert repertoire. Ravel's piano compositions, such as Jeux d'eau, Miroirs, Le tombeau de Couperin and Gaspard de la nuit, demand considerable virtuosity from the performer, and his orchestral music, including Daphnis et Chloé and his arrangement ofModest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, use a variety of sound and instrumentation. Ravel is perhaps known best for his orchestral work Boléro (1928), which he considered trivial and once described as "a piece for orchestra without music". According to SACEM, Ravel's estate had earned more royalties than that of any other French composer. [source from Wikipedia]

Work Information

This is the last dance work of the French composer Maurice Ravel, which is composed in 1928. Ravel adopts a unique technique in this work. The whole music is composed by two themes and their non-stop alternative repetitions on a fixed background of rhythm, which is vitally through from beginning to end. This music is generally acknowledged as one of the most representative orchestral work of France in the 20th century.
