In this book, the first study dedicated to Ravel\'s ballets, Deborah Mawer explores these relationships and argues that ballet music should not be regarded in isolation from its associated arts. Indeed, Ravel\'s views on ballet and other stage works privilege a synthesized aesthetic. The first chapter establishes a historical and critical context for Ravel\'s scores, engaging en route with multimedia theory. Six main ballets from Daphnis et Chlo\u00E9 through to Bol\u00E9ro are considered holistically alongside themes such as childhood fantasy, waltzing and neoclassicism. Each work is examined in terms of its evolution, premiere, critical reception and reinterpretation through to the present; new findings result from primary-source research, undertaken especially in Paris. The final chapter discusses the reasons for Ravel\'s collaborations and the strengths and weaknesses of his interpersonal relations. Mawer emphasizes the importance of the performative dimension in realizing Ravel\'s achievement, and proposes that the composer\'s large-scale oeuvre can, in a sense, be viewed as a balletic undertaking. In so doing, this book adds significantly to current research interest in artistic production and interplay in early twentieth-century Paris [Publisher description].<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Cultural and critical backdrop -- Childhood fantasy and exoticism: Ma M\u00E8re l\'Oye and L\'Enfant -- Greekness and myth in Daphnis et Chlo\u00E9 -- Essays on the waltz I : Ad\u00E9la\u00EFde ou le langage des fleurs (Valses nobles) -- Essays on the waltz II: La Valse and epilogue -- Neoclassical divertissements: Le Tombeau de Couperin and \'fanfare\' from L\'Eventail de Jeanne -- Spain, machines and sexuality: Bol\u00E9ro -- \'Danse g\u00E9n\u00E9rale\': Ravel\'s oeuvre as ballet.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/896774987<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Criticism, interpretation, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/639447735<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The ballets of Maurice Ravel : creation and interpretation<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"60393888<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/60393888#PublicationEvent\/aldershot_england_burlington_vt_ashgate_2006<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/896774987#Agent\/ashgate<\/a>> ; # Ashgate<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/bvbr.bib-bvb.de:8991\/F?func=service&doc_library=BVB01&local_base=BVB01&doc_number=014777216&line_number=0001&func_code=DB_RECORDS&service_type=MEDIA<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/toc\/ecip0512\/2005014109.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780754630296<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\numbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBA612696<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/60393888<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
