Product Details


Considered the greatest French composer since Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel played a decisive role in the history of modern French music that is still examined by students exploring the roots of twentieth-century musical style. An internationally recognized authority on the life and works of Ravel, editor Arbie Orenstein captures the essence of this enigmatic man through the musician's own words, both written and spoken, in an outstanding compilation of articles by Ravel (who was a brilliant critic), reviews, interviews, and some 350 letters---most of which are published here for the first time in English---from Cocteau, Colette, de Falla, Richard Strauss, Stravinsky, and other major figures of the time. A Ravel Reader joins Orenstein's classic Ravel: Man and Musician (now in its third Dover printing), hailed by critics as "a prodigious work of scholarship." Unabridged republication of the work originally published by Columbia University Press, New York, in 1990. 9 appendices. Bibliography. Index. 16 plates. 6 1/8" x 9 1/4", 704 pages.
