Miroirs composed by Maurice Ravel (1875-1937). Edited by Nancy Bricard. For Piano. Masterworks; Piano Collection. Alfred Masterwork Edition. Impressionistic; Masterwork. Advanced. Book. 72 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.4868).

This set of five pieces reflects an intensely personal, realistic and sensitive portrayal of animal life, the sea and pastoral landscapes. Powerfully poetic and vividly descriptive, the music exhibits Ravel's inventiveness and compositional precision. Each is improvisatory in character and free in structure, with unusual colors and sounds. This edition's informative introduction will assist pianists in making an accurate interpretation of the works.

  • December 05, 2011 Best edition available by far

    Any pianist learning Miroirs should start with this edition. The manuscript and the Durand edition are filled with major errors, such as misalignment of systems and rhythmic errors, that make these very difficult to learn. The editor has carefully addressed these, often using information from the dedicatees of the pieces...

    who studied with Ravel, and explains all her changes. Further, the engraving is superior as is true with most of the Alfred editions. This is particularly important in the dense arpeggios in Barque etc. Highly recommended.

    This version is far too fussy. It has strange pedal markings and even a time before each piece for how long it should be played. Most copies of Ravel's music are fine, but this one is too fussy. I recommend Durand.

  • August 02, 2009 Ravel Miroirs

    The Miroirs by Maurice Ravel are truly some of the most difficult pieces I have ever tried to play. However, it is also very rewarding to hear yourself play them. These pieces abound in original and beautiful sonorities, much like the Images by Claude Debussy. This edition of the Miroirs...

    is very useful, because it includes useful commentary and fingerings. I definitely would recommend "Alborada del Gracioso" and "Une Barque sur l'Ocean." Any advanced pianist will find hours of enjoyment studying these magnificent pieces.

  • July 10, 2001 For Ravel enthusiasts

    This suite is one of Ravel's most imaginative and captivating, besides his "Gaspard de la Nuit," which is much more difficult than this suite. This edition is also helpful with editorial fingering, and editorial notes. A good purchase for the aspiring pianist.
