£14.99

1. Pavane de la Belle au bois dormant
2. Laideronnette, Impératrice des pagodes
3. Les entretiens de la Belle et de la Bête

Three movements from Ravel's delicious "Mother Goose" Suite. The Pavane of Sleeping Beauty is a short simple movement describing a procession of mourning for Sleeping Beauty. The Empress of the Toy Mandarins is a dazzling movement inspired by the Orient, describing the miniature statues on the pagodas playfully coming to life. The final movement, Conversations of Beauty and the Beast begins as a charming and lyrical Waltz before the Bass flute takes on the role of the Beast surrounded by colourful harmonies in the other parts. An ideal recital piece for an advanced quintet.
