maurice ravelon a whim, I picked up a deeply discounted Ravel Piano Works CD a few months ago, and since it has been a staple of my contemplation.
I like Menuet Antique, it's a booful piece of muzik.
One solo piano, I picked up the score and it looks damn hard.
from this I gather that he wrote it when he was twenty.
Menuet Antique and most of his other work strikes an emotional chord in me - like Bjork with more chin in hand, and less jumping and writhing. Somber, melancholic, contemplative. Nice like that. At times.
