Ravel Ma mère l'Oye
Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte
Ravel Une barque sur l'océan from Miroirs
Ravel Alborada del gracioso from Miroirs
Ravel Gaspard de la nuit

RCM musicians perform a selection of Ravel’s piano works ahead of a concert with Sir Antonio Pappano on Sunday 8 March.

Ma mère l’Oye – or the Mother Goose suite – was written for the Godebski children and is full of familiar charming motifs. The restrained melancholy of Pavane pour une infante défunte offers a moment of reflection before two movements from Ravel’s Miroirs suite, the first invoking the swaying trance of a boat on the ocean waves and the second a Spanish jester’s flamboyant dance.

Gaspard de la nuit closes the performance on a note of the fantastic, and contains a fiendish technical challenge in the form of its Scarbo movement.
