French composer Maurice Ravel died on this day in 1937 – aged 62.
Along with Claude Debussy, he is remembered as one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist Music – with much of his piano, chamber, vocal and orchestral works having entered today’s standard concert repertoire.
He died as a result of experimental brain surgery – after suffering a head injury in an automobile accident.
