The Beauty of Listening

 

The simplicity of the second movement of the Concerto in G Major by Maurice Ravel can only be fully appreciated after the experience of the vivacious first movement. It’s a breath of fresh air, like stopping to enjoy a beautiful sunset after a long day. As time passes by, you begin to hear tension that builds into a delightful swirl of movement. It’s almost like getting lost into a whirlwind of colorful sound. It has become one of my favorite pieces to play, because it’s a challenge to be patient enough to truly listen for the variation of colors in its music.
