Ravel's Bolero and other classics

Tonight we're going to a classical music dinner party, invited to bring our favourite piece of classical music. This is my partners..... Should be a great night.

Ah! What a treat! I hope that you'll enjoy a great performance.

Have you ever read a biography of Ravel? Just recently I read a biographical novel covering his last ten years. He must have been quite an unusual man. You can find a brief review of the slim volume on LaGraziana's Kalliopeion at

hank you Edith, during our evening of Classical Music, most of us expressed embarrasement on our lack of knowledge of most of our favourite composers..

That's a really fabulous idea! How was the party? I hope it was a ton of fun and you were exposed to new ones, too. We just went to the Detroit Symphony over the weekend -- some Stravinsky, Silbelius and a Finnish guy I'd never heard of... all wonderful.

I love Ravel and Bolero is a favorite of mine, too. I remember the Torvill and Dean Olympic skating routine so clearly. It has such power and strength.

What a fun time!
