This movement, based on the pentatonic scale, is taken from Ravel's "Mother Goose Suite" originally written as a piano duet and described as "five children's pieces." This movement "Laiderinnette, imperatrice des pagodes" (Little Ugly Girl, Empress of the Pagodas), was based on a story called "The Green Serpent." The pentatonic nature of this piece reflects the association of the far east (Pagodas) with this pentatonic sound. Ravel orchestrated this work and it has also been performed as a ballet - like much of Ravel's music it's lush beauty falls very naturally on the harp.
This arrangement for intermediate-advanced pedal harp was made by Vera Dulova.
