A Little Night Music

Written by Maurice Ravel in memory of friends lost in World War I, it’s not mournful or sentimental, but in honor of the joy of friendship and closeness, camaraderie and humor.  Ravel turned his loss into a beautiful and happy tribute; the way they would have wanted to be remembered.  And on this anniversary of another horrible event, let’s remember the loss not with tears but with fond remembrance and let their love of life shine through.
