Maurice Ravel's melancholy popular “Pavane for a Dead Princess” composed in 1899 was originally written for piano before he arranged it for orchestra in 1910. Though dedicated to a real princess, the Princesse de Polignac, the work does not refer to an actual historical person. For flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon.
