    This is a treat to learn and play. The clarinet part is at "advanced" level; I'd say that the piano part is at"intermediate to late intermediate" level. It is played at a leisurely tempo, which I appreciate... Pianists, be ready to play tantalizing, jazzy chords that fortunately sit...

    reasonably comfortably under the fingers, and be ready to determine crossovers between the hands. (The beauty of the piece makes a little front-end analysis especially enjoyable.) And the haunting, accessible ostinato, shared cleverly between the hands, is a pleasure throughout to play. This is a fine, brief example of Ravel's musical gifts. Ravel was highly esteemed as an orchestrator and harmonist in his day, and he continues to deserve accolades a century later! Enjoy!
