Abstract

Ravel Menuet sur Ie nom d'Haydn 1909 [piano solo] David Vance

Maurice Ravel composed his diminutive Menuet sur Ie nom d'Haydn as part of a celebration to mark the centenary of the Austrian master's death. The Menuet is a movement of a larger work to which many other Parisian notables, including Debussy, made similar contributions. Ravel had been interested in archaic musical forms since his early student days at the Conservatorium. THE piece is only 54 bars long and lasts about a minute and a half. The theme is based on Haydn's own name as a five-note motif.
