MAURICE RAVEL: TZIGANE FOR VIOLIN AND PIANO (HENLE URTEXT EDITION)

Out of stock

Maurice Ravel's Tzigane for Violin and Piano. Urtext edition full score. Composed in 1924, there are three versions of this work: with Piano, with Orchestra and with Luthéal, a device for Keyboard instruments to extend the timbre. #Virtuoso piece in the style of a Hungarian rhapsody# # thus reads Ravel#s entry on Tzigane in the so-called 'Autobiographical Sketch'. Tzigane was inspired by the Hungarian-English violinist Jelly d#Aranyi, to whom Ravel had already promised a virtuoso piece in 1922 following Franz Liszt#s #Hungarian Rhapsodies#. Work progressed slowly and d#Aranyi only received the music four days before the première # but she still gave a brilliant performance.
