Pavane (Pour Une Infante Defunte)
By Maurice Ravel / arr. Robert W. Smith
Belwin Young Band
Conductor Score & Parts
This hauntingly beautiful piece is one of Maurice Ravel's most popular piano works. Robert W. Smith's transcription for winds contrasts a 'music box' effect in bells and triangle against the dynamic rise and fall of the winds. Written as a contest/festival/concert work, it will also serve as a warmup chorale. A great teaching piece!
