Composer of the Week
Maurice Ravel (1875–1937).
Listen to Bolero played at the BBC PROMS
Ravel’s famous orchestral work: Bolero, dates from 1928. Just before embarking on a tour of America, he was commissioned by the Russian ballerina and dance impresario Ida Rubinstein to compose the music for a ballet, provisionally called Fandango.
Ravel was absolutely insistent that the tempo of Bolero should remain constant throughout its 15 minutes, and the work is a feat of stamina for the snare drummer!
On the right, you will also find a performance of Bolero, this time with a clear explanation of how the main melody or theme of the piece is passed around different instruments of the Orchestra.
We know that the snare drum is playing an ostinatto (rhythm pattern that is repeated through out the piece).
Watch the second youtube video/
I like you to listen carefully and identify the instruments that are playing the main melody.
I will list here the different instruments that Ravel's uses to pass around his melody!
Some of the names appears in the video in French! Flute Clarinet Basson Oboe (hautbois d' amour, in French) Trumpet Saxophone English Horn Celesta Trombone
