Maurice Ravel Choice AMQS

09 Aug

Choice AMQS on an off-white 5.75 x 3.5 card, crisply signed and inscribed in black ink, “A Madame Luch Haupt, Maurice Ravel.” Ravel pens the opening two bars of his piece Ma mère l’oye [Mother Goose]. Affixed to a slightly larger album page. In fine condition. Ravel first wrote this as a suite for the piano that could be played by children, later orchestrating a version for ballet. It drew inspiration from the famous fairy tales by Charles Perrault, Madame d’Aulnoy, and Madame de Beaumont, and Ravel desired to invoke the poetry of childhood in the composition. A rare and beautifully penned autograph by the brilliant and influential French composer. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
