Weeknights at 7 p.m. on Classical 90.5

July 27 to July 31
This week we'll enter the personal and musical history of influential composer Maurice Ravel.

Program 1
We examine Ravel's early life, and how his Spanish and Russian heritage shaped his music.

Program 2
We learn about the inception of Ravel's Pavane, his favorite composers, and his attempt to compose the most difficult piano music ever written.

Program 3
We move forward to Ravel's middle years, and watch as he composes minature pieces, joines the Apaches, meets Stravinsky and finally, enlists in the French army.

Program 4
In this episode of Exploring Music, Ravel's dreams of joining the army are thwarted, he composes his Le Tombeau de Couperin, with each movement dedicated to a lost friend, and his Bolero.

Program 5
For Ravel with the roaring twenties came late night parties with Bartok, and an encounter with jazz in Paris.
