Ravel's"Valses nobles et sentimentales"created a stir when they were anonymously premiered in Paris's Societe nationale independante in 1911: many listeners thought they were by Satie, or even Kodaly!

For our new Urtext edition of this work, the famed musicologist Nicolas Southon, a co-editor of the"OEuvres Completes de Gabriel Faure", has examined a large body of sources to present a musical text with many new readings.

The edition contains fingering and performance notes by the French pianist Alexandre Tharaud, one of today's leading interpreters of Ravel's music. Commentaries by pianists closely associated with Ravel, such as Lucian Garban, Vlado Perlemuter, Robert Casadesus and Jacques Fevrier are also included.

* Detailed trilingual preface (Fr/Eng/Ger) and Critical Commentary (Eng)
* Optimum page turns
* Includes a glossary (Fr/Ger/Eng)
