Description
This collection of sheet music by the great French composer Maurice Ravel features 19 of his greatest pieces, all newly-arranged especially for this volume. The subtle melodies and achingly beautiful harmonies oftheselush Impressionist pieces truly do illustrate the sheer Joy Of Ravel.

The pieces by Ravel included in this collection rank alongside Debussy as some of the prettiest Piano musicevercomposed. Ravel himself categorically refused the term 'Impressionist', believing it to be reserved for paintings only, but his music so closely resembles the colourful flourishing and affective beauty of thoseworksof art that it is difficult to resist such a description. Featuring works like Boléro, Jeux D'Eau, Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte as well as excerpts from La Valse, The Joy OfRavel forsolo Piano sound utterly divine.

Pieces like Menuet Antique, Prélude and the selections from Le Tombeau De Couperin perfectly encapsulate what makesRavel's compositions soincredible. His perfectionist methods resulted in extended harmonies, complexly musical modulations and masterful melodies that make these 19 works of art an unabashed joy to play and to hear. Oneof the great things about thissheet music book is the visual beauty of the music. With lilting notes and extensive ties, this is not only a work full of aural pleasure but it's some of the nicest-looking notation out there.Certainly in this case, what you seeis what you get, simply The Joy Of Ravel.
