The melodies of Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) span the entire chronology of his creative output, from his earliest song BALLADE DE LA REINE MORTE D´AIMER (1893), written during his student years at the Paris Conservatory, to the cycle DON QUICHOTTE À DULCINÉE (1932-33), his last compositions in any genre. In his songs, Ravel's text settings display a meticulous attention to detail. Ravel´s melodies are elegant and refined, classical in their phrase structure.
In his treatment of rhythm, Ravel finds subtlety within traditional meters, and dance forms-minuet, waltz, folk dances (especially Spanish dances)-also shape the rhythm in many of his songs.
