Les moulins des Pays-Bas

IMG_8141

The musicology nerd in myself  was also, very excited to visit the Netherlands. It is rumored that Maurice Ravel’s inspiration for Introduction and Allegro were the windmills of the Netherlands. He had spent a sleep-less week composing this harp concerto so he could finish in time to go on holiday here.  In this piece, you can hear the circular motion, imitating a windmill. I had worked on this piece during my senior year of undergrad…one of my all time favorites.
