Does anyone know of any good intermediate (as in level 4-7 ish) Ravel peices? Ravel is one of my favorate composers, and I can't seem to find any of his piano music in any of my books (except his prelude, but that's a little easy). Is his "Pavane" too advanced? Just curious.

I haven't played, but Pavane pour une Infante Defunte is Grade 9 In canada, which is about 6-7 in US I believe... If your closer to level 4 then I guess It might be a bit too difficult... but if not you could probably play.

The Prelude, and the Minuet on the name Haydn, and In the manner of Borodin should all be within your grasp.

The Prelude is quite difficult to perform convincingly, however....

Oooo, try the Minuet or Prelude from tombeau de couperin... Prelude is harder, grade 10 level in Canada syllabus, probly 7-8 In your's not sure.  Minuet is easier though.. Avoid the Tocatta at all costs though..don't even look at it.
