Maurice Ravel: Sonatine For Piano (Edition Peters Urtext)

Books | Piano

Publisher: Edition Peters
Composer: Maurice Ravel
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Maurice Ravel’s Sonatine for Piano Solo, composed in 1905, has a classical form in the style of Haydn, blended with modern harmonisation. It is very different from the impressionist style of Debussy and is characterised by a delightful spontaneity. The first movement has a feeling of nostalgic freshness, bright and clear. The second movement harks to late 18th-century elegance and structured form. The third movement has a virile energy pulsing through several sequential patterns to plaintive charm and brings a return of the initial theme. This contrast of vitality and tenderness is finished with a sparkling climax.

This Urtext Edition of Ravel's Sonatine For Piano Solo has been reproduced from original manuscripts and accurate transcriptions to be as close to the composer’s intentions as possible and also contains detailed background notes as well as a full critical commentary for this edition.
