RAVEL Suite from Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose)
Composers in the Roaring ‘20's began to break from tradition to compose bright, appealing music, often influenced by jazz and world music. Stravinsky
made his conducting debut with this brisk neo-classical chamber piece, a young Prokofiev produced a lyrical and exciting violin concerto, Milhaud created jazz and Brazilian-influenced ballet, and Ravel reveals his perpetual childlike and game-playing humor in the Mother Goose Suite.
