Maurice Ravels operas LHeure espagnole (1907/1911) and LEnfant et les sortilèges (1919–25) are pivotal works in the composers relatively small œuvre. Emerging from periods shaped by very distinct musical concerns and historical circumstances,MoreMaurice Ravels operas LHeure espagnole (1907/1911) and LEnfant et les sortilèges (1919–25) are pivotal works in the composers relatively small œuvre. Emerging from periods shaped by very distinct musical concerns and historical circumstances, these two vastly different works nevertheless share qualities that reveal the heart of Ravels compositional aesthetic.

In this comprehensive study, Emily Kilpatrick unites musical, literary, biographical and cultural perspectives to shed new light on Ravels operas. In documenting the operas history, setting them within the cultural canvas of their creation and pursuing diverse strands of analytical and thematic exploration, Kilpatrick reveals crucial aspects of the composers working life: his approach to creative collaboration, his responsiveness to cultural, aesthetic and musical debate, and the centrality of language and literature in his compositional practice.

The first study of its kind, this book is an invaluable resource for students, specialists, opera-goers and devotees of French music.
