Maurice Ravel composed Mother Goose (Ma mÃ¨re l'oye) as a suite in five movements for piano four hands between 1908-10. He orchestrated the suite in 1911. "The Enchanted Garden (Le Jardin fÃ©erique)," the final movement in the suite, is a beautiful, solemn work that starts slowly and builds to a rousing climax. Set in C major, this shimmering impressionist piece of literature for intermediate orchestra helps develop bow control, vibrato and expressive dynamic playing. This title is available in SmartMusic.
