Pavane (Pour Une Infante Defunte) by Maurice Ravel (1875-1937). Arranged by Robert W. Smith. Concert Band. Concert Band; Masterworks. Belwin Young Band. Impressionistic; Masterwork Arrangement. Grade 2. Conductor Score. 12 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.BD01096C).
This hauntingly beautiful piece is one of Maurice Ravel's most popular piano works. Robert W. Smith's transcription for winds contrasts a 'music box' effect in bells and triangle against the dynamic rise and fall of the winds. Written as a contest/festival/concert work, it will also serve as a warmup chorale. A great teaching piece!
