About the Author

Roger Nichols biography of Ravel nearly sets a standard for its genre. Ravel is placed in his cultural milieu and his career and life then followed. Nichols writes well enough that one is carried forward as if reading a novel, but simultaneously he exhibits impeccable scholarship and a balanced approach. I needed to flesh out my understanding of the composer's life for a musical project that I had undertaken -- I had no idea I would take so much pleasure in the reading of it while being so well informed. Bravo!
