"An excellent new biography of Ravel by Roger Nichols makes clear his ambiguous and fluctuating relation to full-fledged avant-garde modernism. The book is the most nearly complete and inclusive account of his life and work."--Charles Rosen, "The New York Review of Books"--Charles Rosen "The New York Review of Books "
"Mr. Nichols writes perceptively about Ravel's personality and how it shaped his music, and about the earlier works' influence on later compositions. . . . One leaves Mr. Nichols's "Ravel" with a sense of the author's deep insight as well as Ravel's."--James Penrose, "The New Criterion"--James Penrose "The New Criterion "
"[An] insightful biography."--Michael Downes, "Times Literary Supplement"--Michael Downes"Times Literary Supplement" (11/11/2011)
"[A] landmark work."--Chester Lane, "SymphonyNOW"--Chester Lane "SymphonyNOW "
"A quite superb book, simply entitled "Ravel", written by the Englishmen who knows his work better than any other, Roger Nichols."--Simon Heffer, "The Sunday Telegraph"--Simon Heffer"The Sunday Telegraph" (04/10/2011)
"Includes exhaustive notes, a ten-page bibliography, a superb chronology of Ravel's life, and a complete catalog of his works. Highly recommended."--R./i>--R. Pitts "Choice "
"reliable and agreeably readable."--Norman Lebrecht, "New Statesman"--Norman Lebrecht"New Statesman" (01/31/2011)
"To anyone with a special interest in Ravel, this book will be essential reading...Surely the composer's most comprehensive and authoritative English-language biography."--Daniel Snowman, "Literary Review"--Daniel Snowman"Literary Review" (01/01/2011)
"A compelling new biography unravels the mysteries surrounding Ravel.....Mysterious to the end, the fascination of its subject remains fresh throughout this thorough and sympathetic account."--Robert Maycock, "BBC Music Magazine"--Robert Maycock"BBC Music Magazine" (05/01/2011)
"Roger Nichols' volume on Ravel in the Master Musicians series dates from 1977, but this new book is far more than a mere reworking. The availability of much new material has led to a threefold expansion of the original, beautifully produced and very reasonably priced.....One could hardly wish for a more authoritative guide to Ravel."--Philip Borg-Wheeler, "Classical Music"--Philip Borg-Wheeler"Classical Music" (04/23/2011)
