Piece: Maurice Ravel — Jeux d'eau
Why did you choose this piece?
I first heard Jeux d'eau at a piano summer camp in 2014 and started learning it about a year later. I loved the odd yet beautiful harmonies and watery gestures. I think that the magical and spellbinding atmosphere that Ravel created in this composition likely made this his first popular work.
