Maurice Ravel: Miroirs (Piano Book)
By Maurice Ravel / ed. Nancy Bricard
This set of five pieces reflects an intensely personal, realistic and sensitive portrayal of animal life, the sea and pastoral landscapes. Powerfully poetic and vividly descriptive, the music exhibits Ravel's inventiveness and compositional precision. Each is improvisatory in character and free in structure, with unusual colors and sounds. This edition's informative introduction will assist pianists in making an accurate interpretation of the works.
