Danse, L77

composer
circa 1890; published in 1891; originally entitled Tarantelle styrienne
arranger

 
Another early piano piece, written in 1890, takes within its title the Austrian province of Styria, just north of the Italo-Yugoslavian border. A tarantella is a fast Neapolitan dance that can be found in the works of many other composers besides Debussy. Ravel’s orchestration, first conducted by Paul Paray in 1923, has all the instrumental glitter and panache of Ravel’s own Alborado del Gracioso, to which it becomes almost a kind of companion piece.
