Maurice Ravel – The Artist
Joseph Maurice Ravel was a French composer, pianist and conductor. He is often associated with impressionism along with his elder contemporary Claude Debussy, although both composers rejected the term. In the 1920s and 1930s Ravel was internationally regarded as France’s greatest living composer. He liked to experiment with musical form, as in his best-known work, Boléro (1928).
