Prelude (1913)
Ravel composed this wonderful little Prelude in 1913 as a conservatory test. The students where not allowed to see the score before it was to be executed and the tricky part about it is to read the score right to for the hand crossings that must be applied to execute it properly. It is also well used by today's teachers for the same purpose but also as an exercise to apply the appropriate velocity to achive the tenderness of the prelude. It is my view that any pianist should play this at least once in their life.
