This Book Needs A Real Review Dec 2 2010
By B26354 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Amazon description for this book is laughable as the intro begins with this sentence:
"He is remembered in the United States primarily for the rather banal repetitions of Bolero, but Maurice Ravel wrote a great deal of music more worthy of celebration." Ewwwkay. "Rather banal"? "Wrote 'a great deal' of music more worthy"? Does the idiot who wrote that even know Ravel's work or symphonic music at all? Obviously not. If you think Bolero is "banal," go see it performed by a live orchestra and don't rent the movie "10." I look forward to reading other reviews about this book written by people who know what the crap they are writing about.
Ravel, a life of passion and mystery. Sept. 5 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An excellent biography although not fully informative about the composer's death. An article in the British Medical Journal reveals a lot that the author never found.
