What is new and unique in this edition?

  • There are fingerings and solutions to difficult passages by Henriette Renie, Marcel Grandjany, Pierre Jamet, David Watkins, and Phia Berghout.
  • Grandjany performed the piece under Ravel's direction. All of Grandjany's metronome markings for the many tempo changes are included.
  • There is a cadenza insert by Grandjany, which was sanctioned by Ravel.
  • All of the pedal changes are included, in large easy-to-read type.
  • There are pedal diagrams throughout, making practice and rehearsal much easier.
  • There is a Preface that covers the early history of the piece, performance considerations, and advice on playing the glissandi.
  • There is a list of corrections for each of the instruments, so that everyone will, for the first time, be looking at the same musical information.
  • There are footnotes and a glossary that translates all of the French terms.
  • This is the first new engraving of the piece since it was composed in 1906, and it is finally engraved the way it is actually played.
