Maurice Ravel: Bolero For Piano Solo

Books | Piano

Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) is often considered, after the death of Debussy in 1918, to be the leading French composer of the 1920’s and 30’s. Earlier in his career, he had caused consternation in the highly conservative pre-war French musical establishment, with his unmistakable and highly original style.

His most famous work is his Bolero, which marks the pinnacle of his compositional career. Commissioned as a single-movement orchestral ballet in 1928 by Ida Rubenstein, Ravel himself is said to have commented on it by saying: "I've written only one masterpiece...Unfortunately there's no music in it."

Bolero has been re-arranged many times, most notably for Torvill and Dean in their world-record ice skating routine. This arrangement is for solo Piano.

      This piece is for solo piano. It is a Spanish publication with Spanish dynamic markings. The notation is consistent with other pieces by Ravel i.e. placement of notes on the staff is slightly idiosyncratic compared to what I am used to. It arrived within 24 hours of my ordering it.
