Maurice Ravel

Maurice Ravel has been my favorite composer for many years. Studying his life and music has been a real passion for me.

I have visited Ravel’s house (museum) in Montfort L’Amaury, which is 50 km from Paris, several times. I own 23 different books in English about Maurice Ravel’s life and music. Read More

Samson Francois (1924-1970)

My favorite composer is and always has been Maurice Ravel (1875-1937).

Samson Francois was a French concert pianist and, in my opinion, a great one. His Ravel and Debussy recordings are excellent and I also like his Chopin recordings.

The EMI box-set of Samson Francois playing Maurice Ravel has some great moments.
