Published for the first time are Olivier Messiaen's analyses of three important piano works by Maurice Ravel, reconstituted, completed and edited by Yvonne Loriod-Messiaen. In this exceptional study Messiaen invites the reader to share in a total concentration on Ma Mere l'Oye, Gaspard de la Nuit, and Le Tombeau de Couperin that will unfold the harmonic richness, the rhythmic subtlety, the formal invention and the instrumental creativity of Ravel's musical thinking. These personal and far-reaching analyses will allow both performers and listeners to understand more readily the mastery of these works and come closer to the poetic meaning of what Ravel created.

    I was just recently introduced to the music of Ravel and really wanted to know how this man created such beautiful and emotional music. This book really helped me to understand the mechanics of Ravel's piano writing and gave a clear picture of the technical aspects also.The reader...

    will need some music theory background but not a music dcegree to get some insight into Ravel's works.
