Ravel wasn't so jarring after the Prelude to Parsifal ;-)

I listen to what pops into my head, sometimes via reading. I was reading about great orchestrators when the Minuet of Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin was mentioned, so I listened to the whole piece. Which reminds me of ironing(!). My parents kept the radio tuned to WQXR, classical radio in NYC in the 50w/60s and for all I know, still. Anyhow, laundry was my job as a child, and I was ironing when I first heard that piece by Ravel. I loved it and remembered the moment.
