Menuet sur le nom de Haydn


Maurice Ravel (1875-1937)

Menuet sur le nom d’Haydn

In 1909 the Société Internationale de Musique commissioned several composers to write something to commemorate the centenary of the death of Haydn. Those who obliged were Debussy, Dukas, d’Indy, Widor, Hahn, and Ravel with his Menuet sur le nom d’Haydn. By using an extended version of the German musical alphabet HAYDN becomes BADDG, a series which Ravel also uses in retrograde and melodic inversion.
