Pavane pour une infante defunte by : Alexandra Marx : Maurice Ravel
According to Ravel himself; the strange title of the little piano piece composed in 1899; “Pavane for a dead princess;” should not be ascribed too much importance. He chose it mainly because he liked the alliteration it contained. At the same time he did; however; agree that the music evokes “a pavane that a little princess once might have danced at the Spanish court.” Following its premiere in 1902 the simple but effective piece gained unparalleled popularity; not least reflected in the numerous arrangements made of it; one of which; for small orchestra; was by Ravel himself. Henle publishes the work in its original version.
