The pieces by Ravel included in this collection rank alongside Debussy as some of the prettiest Piano music ever composed. Ravel himself categorically refused the term ‘Impressionist’, believing it to be reserved for paintings only, but his music so closely resembles the colourful flourishing and affective beauty of those works of art that it is difficult to resist such a description. Featuring works like Boléro, Jeux D’Eau, Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte as well as excerpts from La Valse, The Joy Of Ravel for solo Piano sound utterly divine.

Pieces like Menuet Antique, Prélude and the selections from Le Tombeau De Couperin perfectly encapsulate what makes Ravel’s compositions so incredible. His perfectionist methods resulted in extended harmonies, complexly musical modulations and masterful melodies that make these 19 works of art an unabashed joy to play and to hear. One of the great things about this sheet music book is the visual beauty of the music. With lilting notes and extensive ties, this is not only a work full of aural pleasure but it’s some of the nicest-looking notation out there. Certainly in this case, what you see is what you get, simply The Joy Of Ravel.

The Joy Of… series is a constantly growing collection of musical editions that is now recognised and loved throughout the world. Originally compiled by the editorial hand of renowned teacher, arranger and musicologist Denes Agay, the series continues to reflect his influence and covers a wide variety of musical genres including the classics, folk, jazz, blues, ragtime and children’s music. New titles are constantly being added to an already extensive range, ensuring that The Joy Of… series continues to be a vital growing treasury of the world’s best music.

if you’re a fan of the genius that is Maurice Ravel and his beautifully-crafted works, you are guaranteed to love the 19 pieces included in The Joy Of Ravel. Equally, if you just want a beautiful collection of solo Piano sheet music, this book will suit you perfectly.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
