This edition contains a selection of the easiest piano pieces and dances by Maurice Ravel. Piano music occupies an important place in his output and often contains dance-like elements. Fortunately Ravel, although a virtuoso pianist, also wrote easier music for the instrument. Alongside famous works such as the “Pavane pour une Infante dfunte”, this selection contains less well-known works and will encourage pianists to make new discoveries. The inclusion of fingering makes it a truly practical performing edition. This is a varied unusual addition to the piano teaching literature with short invaluable information on the works and a well presented music layout.
