    The Fairy Garden - Maurice Ravel

    Ravel wrote his five short piano pieces entitled Ma Mere l'Oye (Mother Goose) in 1910. The suite explores the enchanted world of childhood through five atmospheric tales. The final part of Ravel's suite is a grand finale, although where Ravel got his inspiration for the fairy garden is unknown. Whatever its origin, it certainly is a delightful piece of music - slow in tempo, quiet to start, with rich harmonies and delicate solos, all leading to a tumultuous climax.

    Bolero - Ravel, M.

    'A piece for orchestra without music' was one way that Ravel described his Bolero, one of his last compositions before illness finally subdued him. 'Simply a seventeen minute crescendo for orchestra' was another version of his opinion, although this reduced arrangement is closer to 7 minutes due to the lesser forces available to a brass band. Whatever his own thoughts on the matter, the Bolero remains one of the most recognisable and enjoyable of musical masterpieces.

    Pavane for a Dead Princess - Ravel, M.

    The first of Ravel's compositions to achieve success, the effect the composer intended is light and flowing, not, as Ravel once complained, "a dead pavane for a princess". For those interested in these things, the word "dead" of the title is a mistranslation. The French word here is "d?functe" which can, as in English mean "dead", but in this particlar context means "of a former time". "Pavane for a Princess of an Ancient Time" is much more accurate. No more corpses, please !

    Raveling, Unraveling - Philip Sparke

    WINNING PERFORMANCE EBBC LILLE 2016 Raveling, Unraveling - In Search of 'La Valse' was written for the Cory Band as their own-choice test piece for the 2016 European Brass Band Championships in Lille. The piece found its genesis in Sparke's The Unknown Journey (2014) for concert band, and the use of Ravel's La Valse as a structural undercurrent to the original piece is an act of reverence. Sparke's aim was to produce a work that is organic rather than episodic in nature. The composer's view is that little in music does this better than La Valse and for this reason he uses various sections of this masterpiece, both manipulated and quoted verbatim (including much of its stunningclosing passages) to provide the overall geography of his new work. As the music progresses, more of the Ravel appears, surfacing completely as the piece reaches its climax - a gesture of homage to the French master.
