Study Group: The Music of Maurice Ravel

Shadowing the themes of the Maurice Ravel seventy-fifth anniversary concert series, this first Wigmore Study Group of the season examines his music. Hosted by composer Julian Philips, the three afternoons offer three approaches: a masterclass on Ravel's string quartet; a performance-analysis of his piano music; and an exploration of his song settings and the historical context in which they were written. With contributions from distinguished musicologists and postgraduate musicians from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. (Also on Thur Dec 8 and Wed Dec 14.)
