Friday Night Beauty: Ravel, “Jeux d’Eau” (Sviatoslav Richter, piano)

Here is an amazing little gem found on YouTube: the late legendary Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter playing one of Ravel’s earliest works, a virtuoso piano piece named “Jeux d’Eau” (“fountains”).

There’s a reason why Maurice Ravel was known as “the Swiss watchmaker” among his contemporaries in the music world.

For pianists and anyone who reads music, the sheet music can be downloaded here. (The work has passed into the public domain.)

Enjoy!
