Le Tombeau De Couperin For Piano
New Urtext Edition of the music of Maurice Ravel by Roger Nichols In preparing this Urtext edition of Ravel's piano music, Roger Nichols consulted no fewer than 14 sources - including sound recordings by Ravel himself and other pianists with whom the composer worked. As a result he is uniquely qualified to evaluate the complexity of the sources and, with this edition, has provided today's pianists with the tools to make their own well-informed performance choices about this infinitely-rewarding repertoire. This volume contains Le tombeau de Couperin, Ravel's elegy for friends who had died in the First World War. Contains a preface in French, English and German, critical commentary, and authoratitive text of the score.
