Le Tombeau de Couperin is a suite for solo piano by Maurice Ravel, composed between 1914 and 1917. The piece is in six movements, based on those of a traditional Baroque suite. Each movement is dedicated to the memory of a friend of the composer who had died fighting in World War I. Ravel also produced an orchestral version of the work in 1919, although this omitted the Fugue and Toccata movements. Pianist Michael Round created this orchestration, which was recorded by Vladimir Ashkenazy (Exton, 2003). The instrumentation matches Ravel's scoring from the original four suites.
