Two works by Maurice Ravel that have challenged and inspired me greatly.

I dedicate this post to four renowned concert pianists that I studied under as a young man in New York City: John Ranck, Berenice Lipson-Grüzen, Arminda Canteros and Jacob Lateiner. They were all inspiring pedagogues, and colourful personalities …

Alas, I was never good enough to perform these works professionally but they have inspired much in the way of my poetry and paintings … Adam Donaldson Powell.
