PROGRAM NOTES
During the time I was working on this arrangement of Bolero for wind orchestra I was given a copy of the book ‘Musicophilia - Tales of Music and the Brain’ - by Oliver Sacks, Professor of Clinical neurology at Columbia University, New York. Within its pages I was confronted with the information that "Maurice Ravel, the composer, suffered in the last years of his life from a condition....................which would probably now be diagnosed as a form of frontotemporal dementia". Later, Professor Sacks "wonders, indeed, whether Ravel was on the cusp of a dementia when he wrote his Bolero, a work characterized by the relentless repetition of a single musical phrase dozens of times, waxing in loudness and orchestration but with no development".

My curiosity was roused, and remains so, as to how different ‘Bolero’ might have been had it been written earlier in Ravel's life?
