Maurice Ravel Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Joseph-Maurice Ravel (March 7, 1875 – December 28, 1937) was a French composer known especially for his melodies, masterful orchestration, richly evocative harmonies and inventive instrumental textures and effects. Along with Claude Debussy, he was one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music. Much of his piano music, chamber music, vocal music and orchestral music is part of the standard concert repertoire.Ravel's piano compositions, such as Jeux d'eau, Miroirs, Le tombeau de Couperin and Gaspard de la nuit, demand considerable virtuosity from the performer, and his mastery of orchestration is particularly evident in such works as Rapsodie espagnole, Daphnis et Chloé and his arrangement of Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. Ravel is perhaps known best for his orchestral work Boléro (1928), which he once described as "a piece for orchestra without music".According to SACEM, Ravel's estate had earned more royalties than that of any other French composer.

1(When asked by George Gershwin to take him on as a pupil) "If I do, you will become second-class Ravel. Better that you remain first-class Gershwin."
1For the last five years of his life, Ravel was unable to compose much of anything due to injuries suffered from a taxi cab accident.
2Composed his two piano concertos simultaneously, beginning both concertos in 1929 and ending both concertos within two years. What is even more remarkable is that these two concertos are widely felt to be of greatly contrasting styles and moods.
3Composed his Piano Concerto in D Major for the Left Hand under commission of Paul Wittgenstein, a concert pianist who lost his right arm during World War I. Unfortunately, Wittgenstein didn't like the final composition, and didn't change his mind about it until after Ravel's death. The work, however, has since become a staple of the concert repertoire.
4Jazz musicians Gil Evans and Miles Davis both considered Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli's 1957 recording of Ravel's 'Piano Concerto in G Major' to be one of their favorite pieces of music.
5His mother was Spanish, and Ravel wrote several Spanish-related pieces, among them "Alborada del Gracioso" and the opera "L'Heure Espagnole".
6He wrote several songs for G.W. Pabst's 1933 film version of "Don Quixote", but they were rejected in favor of the songs that Jacques Ibert eventually composed for the film. Ravel later turned his score into the song cycle "Don Quichotte a Dulcinee".
7He is by far the most financially successful composer that France has ever produced. His music still brings in several million dollars a year in royalties.
8He loved being near water and wrote many of his compositions, including "Rhapsodie espagnole", onboard the Aimèe, a yacht owned by his friends.
9Growing up he had to be bribed six sous an hour by his parents to practice the piano.
10Father and mother are of Swiss and Basque descent, respectively.
