Maurice ravel ravel - claude debussy debussy bolero - der dreispitz el sombrero de tres picos
In spite of leaving one of the richest and most important bodies of work of any early twentieth century composer, one that included virtually every genre except for symphony and liturgical music, Ravel is most often remembered for an arrangement of another composer's work, and for a piece he considered among his least significant. His orchestral arrangement of Mussorgsky 's piano suite Pictures at an Exhibition has been wildly popular with concertgoers (and the royalties from it made Ravel a rich man). Boléro, a 15-minute Spanish dance in which a single theme is repeated in a variety of instrumental guises, has been ridiculed for its insistent repetitiveness, but it is also a popular favorite and one of the most familiar and frequently performed orchestral works of the twentieth century.

1580s, "to untangle, disentangle, unwind" (originally with out ), also "to entangle, become tangled or confused," from Dutch ravelen "to tangle, fray," rafelen "to unweave," from rafel "frayed thread." The seemingly contradictory senses of this word ( ravel and unravel are both synonyms and antonyms) are reconciled by its roots in weaving and sewing: as threads become unwoven, they get tangled.
Adagio For Strings
iTunes Amazon One of the saddest piece of classical music ever composed. A rearrangement of the second movement of his "String Quartet In B Minor," this somber piece says "mourning." Played at funerals for Albert Einstein and Princess Grace of Monaco, and in slow motion scenes in war films, like in Oliver Stone's 1986 film "Platoon," which was parodied in the 1996 "Seinfeld" episode "The Fatigues." Also in the 2001 movie "Amélie." You may have heard electronic versions of this piece by techno DJ William Orbit in 2000 and DJ Tiesto in 2005.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, he said: “I am particularly desirous there should be no misunderstanding about this work. It constitutes an experiment in a very special and limited direction and should not be suspected of aiming at achieving other or more than it actually does.”
