MILHAUD: Le Boeuf sur le toit

RAVEL: Pavane pour une infant defunte

RAVEL: Bolero


Description:
Love it or hate it, Ravel's Bolero has always been a magnet for an opinion. At its premier a woman yelled out that the composer must be insane! To which he replied "Aha! She understood the piece." Listen for yourself.

Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide Rena K. of Egg Harbor Twp, NJ won this week's contest by correctly ID'ing Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune".
