The Cambridge Companion to Ravel (Cambridge Companions to Music)  

To mark the 125th anniversary of his birth this book provides a solid foundation for any study of Ravel.An excellent introduction into the his life including essays by leading international scholars, this book examines Ravel's work in detail and within its cultural context. There are many musical examples of piano, chamber, orchestral, ballet, songs and opera plus research into Ravel's exotism and nationalism and the performances and reception of his music.

 

 

Ravel  

Roger Nichols has written and contributed to more than twenty books on music and has edited most of the music of Ravel for the peters editions. This new and sensitively written biography of Ravel is drawn from written and oral material, some recently translated and some derived from interviews with Ravel's friends and associates.As well as describing his life and circumstances there is a detailed account of his very successful tour of America in 1928.
