Programme Notes / Performance Details :Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) is considered to be one of the most prominent French composers of the early 20th century. Ravelís unique and sophisticated sense of musical style and form coupled with his now signature use of tonal language, has established him as the creator of compositions that stand out for their freshness and originality. Much of Ravelís early career (while concurrently a student at the Paris Conservatoire) was centered around his inability to win the coveted music-composition award, the Prix de Rome. The Paris musical establishment repeatedly overlooked Ravelís compositions and his fifth rejection for this prize caused a scandal. Public opinion felt that Ravel had been severely wronged. Music critics publicly supported Ravel which ultimately led to the forced resignation of the head of the Paris Consevatoire, who was then replaced by Gabriel Faure.
