I'm reading Roger Nichols' "Ravel", which is a very detailed biography of the composer. Just check this, it's priceless (about the pieces on the Mallarmé poems):

I’m sure it delighted the composer. :)

It did.
I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

Just found out I'll be playing the Piano Trio (on cello) at a chamber music festival I'm attending this summer! I'm quite thrilled to have the opportunity to really get inside one of my very favorite chamber works, to say the least. :)

The Piano trio is truly one of Ravel's magical creations.

Wow, you have my admiration if you can play such a virtuoso piece, and one of my favorites as well. Good luck!  :)
