Maurice Ravel’s Valses Nobles et Sentimentales premiered
9 May 1911
The Valses nobles et sentimentales is a suite of waltzes composed by Maurice Ravel, 105 years ago, in homage to Franz Schubert, who had released collections of waltzes in 1823 entitled Valses nobles and Valses sentimentales. The suite contains an eclectic blend of Impressionist and Modernist music, which is especially evident in the orchestrated version.
