Program Notes

Pavane Pour Une Infante Défunte (Pavane for a Dead Princess) was first composed in 1899 for piano while Ravel was still a music student at the Paris Conservatory. In 1910, the composer scored the work for orchestra, and it remains to this day as one of his most popular works. The style is expressive and lyrical throughout.
