Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Ravel's friend the composer and pianist Alfredo Casella had published a group of six pastiches in 1911 and was planning a second volume, to which he invited Ravel to contribute. The two subjects chosen by Ravel were among his favourite composers. The Borodin pastiche is a waltz that makes characteristic use of chromatic harmonies over ostinato pedals, echoing the ‘Sérénade’ from Borodin’s Petite suite and the scherzo of his Second String Quartet.
