"The Most Perfect of Swiss Watchmakers" - the music of Maurice Ravel (Rebroadcast)
08.16.2018 - By Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast
This week, we're exploring 4 of the greatest pieces of the French master, Maurice Ravel. Through the Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, Tombeau de Couperin, and of course, Bolero, we dive into the incredibly unique and wonderful style of Ravel. There's no other composer that sounds like Ravel - his unmatched orchestration, charming naïveté, and deeply buried sensuality make him one of the most remarkable composers of any era to spend some time with. Thanks for listening!
