ÉDOUARD LALO
(1823-1892)

Born in Lille. He studied initially at the Lille Conservatory and later studied violin at the Paris Conservatory with François Antoine Habeneck and composition privately with Joseph Crèvecoeur. At first, he made his musical living as a violinist and teacher but composing would become increasingly important. He composed in various genres and his opera "Le Roi d'Ys" holds a small place on the fringes of the repertoire as does his ballet "Namouna." However, he is most often represented by his various concertos for stringed instruments including his so-called "Symphonie Espagnole."

MAURICE RAVEL
(1875-1937)

Born in Ciboure, Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Aquitaine. He studied piano as a child and later was trained at the Paris Conservatory initially by Eugène Anthiôme and Charles de Bériot but later on more importantly in counterpoint by André Gédalge and composition by Gabriel Fauré. His musical career was devoted almost exclusively to composition and he excelled at whatever genre he worked in, from opera and ballet to wonderful creations for orchestra, instrumental combinations, voice and, especially, the piano. Ravel wrote no symphonies but the ballet "Daphnis et Chloé" is listed here because Ravel called it a "Symphonie Choréographique." His larger orchestral works written for the concert hall are his Piano Concerto in G, Piano Concerto in D for the Left Hand, Rapsodie Espagnole and Boléro. Most of his other famous orchestral pieces are Ravel's own orchestrations of his piano works. Though his music is markedly different from that of Debussy, the two are considered the twin giants of French musical impressionism.
