We are incorporating the wonderful composer Maurice Ravel (1875 – 1937) into our Behind the Lines project. He was directly involved in World War One, not only through enlisting in the army, but through his compositions. Le tombeau de Couperin is dedicated to each of his friends that died during the war, and it became one of his most famous works.

The following information pack will give you an overview of Ravel’s life and his experiences of the World War One as well as a fascinating look into his compositions inspired by the war.
