Ravel Revealed

Roger Nichols and Sara Mohr-Pietsch visit Ravel's house, Le Belvedere, in Monfort L'Amaury, near Paris, where his piano and composing room remain unchanged since his death.

Roger Nichols and Sara Mohr-Pietsch visit Ravel's home, Le Belvedere, in Monfort L'Amaury just outside Paris - and discover a house which bears testament to many of the composer's obsessions. They see furniture and interiors designed by Ravel himself, which hint at his fascination with Greek mythology and the Orient, and Roger plays the much-loved Erard piano in the composing room where Ravel wrote his opera L'enfant et les sortileges.
