Form: Suite. Impressionistic. Late Intermediate. Collection. Performance notes and historical notes. 40 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.22554).
ISBN 0739034162. With performance notes and historical notes. Impressionistic. 9x12 inches.
Ma mere l'oye (Mother Goose Suite) is typical of Ravel's style with its modal melodies, use of dance forms and rhythmic precision. For this suite, Ravel selected favorite French fairy tales with references to fantasy, dreams and legends of childhood, and provided simple and delicate settings for piano duet (one piano, four hands). Although featuring childhood themes, Ma mere l'oye is at the late intermediate to early advanced level. This teaching/performance edition contains the suite in its entirety and is based on the first edition published by Durand in 1910. Editors Gayle Kowalchyk and E. L. Lancaster have included expert fingering suggestions and hand redistributions for technical ease, and have suggested ways to perform grace notes and glissandi in footnotes. The primo and secondo parts are on separate pages with measure numbers in both parts for easy reference. Late intermediate to early advanced.

Easier side of Ravel
This set is fun to play with a colleague with at least intermediate level skills. Great for teacher and advancing student too. It affords a softer introduction to Ravel's piano music as the writing is less dense but with its own interpretative challenges. Good for tackling colors and modes.
