Dance Music For Pianist's Who Can't Dance
This is a effective arrangement of an orchestral warhorse which can be expanded or contracted at the pianist's discretion. The work given to the left hand is a convincing evocation of the madness-inducing repetition of the underlying rhythym for which the piece is well known. It is a challenging piece on the piano for all of the same reasons that it is for an orchestra but even more so given you've only got one instrument to work with. This is a well-structured arrangement; if you want a platform from which to add your own madness into this piece, this will work for you.

Bolero is a passionate Ravel piece with a Spanish quality. It goes on for 15 min. Starting very soft then reaching its climax. A very wonderful piece
