English.

Dedicated to Gabriel Faure, Ravel prefaces this piece of liquid poetry with a line by Henri de Regnier: The river god laughs at the water as it tickles him. Ravel indicated that he wanted the work played in the way you play Liszt, and the technique required to play it hearkens to Franz Liszt, but the sonorities and transparency are definitely impressionistic. Polytonality, rippling arpeggios, tremolos, trills, double notes, major seconds, sevenths, ninths and other high-numbered chords are featured.

  • May 13, 2020 well worth the money

    The readability and paper quality are good, and the fingering is also useful. There are some misprints though; at bars 35, 69 and 71. Notice that the 8va applies to both note lines at bars 67-69 and 72. All in all a good edition of a beautiful piece for...

    a reasonable price. For technically adept players only.

    Heard it on NPR. Arrangement is great but to hard for my wife, who I bought it for. Definitely level 10!

    This is one of the masterpieces of French Impressionism. Have a solid technique before approaching this piece or you will never be able to play the last few pages in tempo. Sophisticated piece.

    Hinson is a great editor-very true to the composer's intent and he offers a very reasonable price for students who purchase great amounts of music. The edition provides fingerings, a short biography of the composer and piece, and musical suggestions. Great condition and service!
