French composer Maurice Ravel was born on this day in 1875.

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.
