Maurice Ravel: Prelude For Piano In A Minor 65 By Guillaume Coppola
A composed thought
Enjoying international respect during the 20s and 30s, Ravel’s oeuvre is often considered the pinnacle of the impressionist movement of the early 20th Century. Ravel’s Prelude in A minor is so short, it is as if he had a passing thought and sat down to write it in musical form. If it was indeed a thought, the rolling feel and minor key suggests Ravel was anxious or worried at the time.
