More About This Book

Overview

Alexander Publishing's How Ravel Orchestrated: Mother Goose Suite is a breakthrough in orchestration instruction with its newly engraved score with piano part at page bottom, the original short stories that Ravel based the work on, and a complete analysis of each movement, combined together, showing how Ravel orchestrated. For fast referencing, each bar is numbered at the bottom of the page (original rehearsal markings are also included). By including the piano part at page bottom, students of counterpoint will see specific devices that Ravel used, where, and how he orchestrated them. Jazz musicians and composers will also see how Ravel composed and orchestrated using altered Dominant 7th chords, mixolydian chord scales, and triads with the added 9th. Preceding each movement is the complete short story that movement was based on, which helps teach dramatic composition and scoring techniques. By comparing back to Ravel's score, a better understanding of Ravel's approach is gained. Following each movement is a brief orchestration analysis based on The Eight Keys of Professional Orchestration as taught in Alexander Publishing's Professional Orchestration Series. How Ravel Orchestrated: Mother Goose Suite is further supported by an optional CD or legal downloadable MP3 performance of Mother Goose Suite, color coded scores showing how the piano part went to score, and a video performance of the entire work as found on YouTube.
