12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Lyndon Meyer on November 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
I give this book 5 stars because it is the cheapest way to own the best editions of Ravel's greatest masterpieces for piano. The last reviewer is correct in stating that these are reprints of the original french editions, but those editions remain the best since there currently exists no critical or scholarly editions of ravel's piano works. The Dover edition even corrects some errors that existed in the original editions. The last reiviewer likes Nancy Bricard's editions (and other editions published by Alfred edited by Maurice Hinson) but I think Nancy Bricard got a little too happy when she got access to Ravel's manuscript, and purposefully included obvious errors into the score, including a footnote explaining that it's an error, instead of just correcting it. Alfred can hardly be trusted for scholarly editing, so for now, this edition remains the best buy.

The edition is clearly an attractive one. Not only is it an affordable and well layed-out presentation of Ravel's greatest works for solo piano (indeed, one would hardly expect to find Miroirs, Gaspard de la nuit, and Jeux d'eau in one volume), it is also a compilation of the authoritative Durand and original French editions, editions which, when sold separately, are notoriously expensive. A must-have for any serious, ambitious musician, or devoted connoisseur!

Format: Paperback
Dover Publications does a fantastic job of providing high-quality scores at a minimum of cost. This collection of Maurice Ravel's compositions for solo piano is no exception. A few of the compositions in this collection are Sonatine, Gaspard de la nuit, Pavane pour une infante défunte, and 4 others... You will not find a better offer than this, unless it's published by Dover.

13 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Joe Sullins on November 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is indeed a very good publication of some very important works by Ravel. Certainly the price alone justifies the purchase, considering Durand editions are still nearly 50% or higher in price. The edition does however, through no fault of Dover because it is a reprint, present some notational flaws that have not been corrected. Nancy Bricard has published a much more authoritative and instructive edition for Alfred Masterworks, for instance of Gaspard de la Nuit. Correcting many of the most obvious of errors. The Dover edition is still reliable, but one must warn that a proper performance dictates cross-reference with other editions.

The chart size is small that you hardly can see the notes. I'm thinking to print out all the chart but then, what's the functioning of Ebook?!
