More About this Item


Description: RAVEL, MAURICE. (1875-1937). French composer; creator of masterpieces such as Daphnis et Chloe, Gaspard de la nuit and Bolero. CS. (“Maurice Ravel”). 1p. 16mo. N.p., March 19, 1933. An elegantly penned black-ink signature on a card with a blind-embossed border. ********** Although Ravel’s artistic achievement at the Paris Conservatoire was notable, so was his academic failure. He was expelled from Gabriel Fauré’s composition class at the Conservatoire in 1900 and let go altogether three years later. Despite his rejection by the establishment, Ravel began to give composition lessons to friends he met in a group called the Apaches, members of which included Manuel de Falla, Paul Sordes and Igor Stravinsky. He developed a pioneering style, which “relied to an unusual extent on the manipulation of musical objects,” (The New Grove Dictionary). Among his masterpieces are the complex piano suite Gaspard de la nuit, the ballet Daphnis et Chloé, the one-act opera L’enfant et les sortilèges, and, one of his best-known works, the orchestral Rapsodie espagnole. ********** With some light surface wear and one small crease. Mounting traces on the verso. In very good condition.
