Ravel – Ma Mère l’Oye – Argerich & Buniatishvili, Piano

Ma mère l’Oye (Mother Goose) is a suite of “cinq pièces enfantines” (five children’s pieces) by French composer Maurice Ravel. Ravel originally wrote Ma mère l’Oye as a piano duet for the Godebski children, Mimi and Jean, ages 6 and 7. In 1911, Ravel orchestrated the work. The piece was also transcribed for solo piano by Ravel’s friend Jacques Charlot the same year as it was published (1910). Martha Argerich and Khatia Buniatishvili are playing the piece No 3 : Laideronnette, impératrice des pagodes (Little Ugly Girl, Empress of the Pagodas). – Khatia Buniatishvili
