Maurice Ravel: La Valse (Miniature Score)

Books | Orchestra

Publisher: Dover Publications
Composer: Maurice Ravel
Format: Books | Study Score
La Valse was originally composed as a tribute to Johann Strauss Jr, and in a style that is a parodic and apocalyptic view of wartime Vienna. Subtitled Poeme Choregraphique Pour Orchestre, the piece employs the awesome forces of triple winds, two harps and a host of percussion, and was commissioned by Sergie Diaghilev in 1919 to be first performed in Paris in 1929. The full score is reproduced here in a convenient and attractively-priced miniature format.
