(Old Ravel)

Take a few minutes out of your busy day and spend a few minutes with one of the most gorgeous moments in piano concerto history. It is the 2nd movement of Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto. I feel an affinity with this movement. It is perhaps at the heart of my take on tonality as a composer. There is a melancholy beauty in this music that breaks my heart.
