Maurice Ravel was born in Cibourne (Basque Country) in 1875.
He follows lessons in piano, harmony and counterpoint. In 1897, he entered the composition class of Gabriel Fauré.
His modernism and his exceptional gifts earned him the enmity of the traditionalists, seeing him as a "revolutionary" daring to admire Chabrier and attend Satie!
When his mother dies, he exiles himself to Montfort-l'Amaury. His house has now become the Maurice RAVEL Museum.
He died in Paris in 1937. His fame went beyond our frontier (Europe, United States) as a pianist, conductor and composer. His Bolero remains the most widely circulated and performed work in the world.
