"Ma mère l'Oye" ("Mother Goose") is a musical work by French composer Maurice Ravel. Ravel originally wrote Ma mère l'Oye as a piano duet for the Godebski children, Mimi and Jean, ages 6 and 7. Ravel dedicated this work for four hands to the children (just as he had dedicated an earlier work, Sonatine, to their parents). Jeanne Leleu and Geneviève Durony premiered the work at the first concert of the Société Musicale Indépendante on 20 April 1910.
"Pavane de la Belle au bois dormant" (Pavane of Sleeping Beauty) is the first piece of the suite. "Le jardin féerique" (The Fairy Garden) is the fifth and last piece of the suite. The atmosphere of both piece is magical full of impressionistic harmonies and nuances. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juwfuhvM0o0
