Maurice Ravel: Tzigane, Rhapsodie By Ensemble Recoveco & Ile-De-France National Orchestra
The drama and mystery of a gipsy’s rhapsody
Born on the 7th March 1875, Joseph Maurice Ravel’s skill with piano and composition garnered him worldwide renown. Today he is regarded as one of France’s most influential musical talents. A barnstorming work for solo violin and orchestra, many gypsy and folk dance themes are heard throughout this work, tasking the violinist to stamp along and quicken the orchestra up with him as he does.
