Ravel - Violin sonata (1897). You can download the PDF sheet music Ravel - Violin sonata (1897) on this page. Ravel wrote his one-movement Violin Sonata of 1897 as a twenty-two-year-old student at the Paris Conservatory, but it remained unpublished until 1975, over forty years after his death. This youthful piece is well-constructed, with the opening triplet figure returning at regular intervals. It's interesting, too, to hear vestiges of the styles of César Franck and Fauré, which he would soon assimilate into a less obviously derivative language of his own. A similarity exists between the opening phrase of this Sonata and that of the Piano Trio of 1915, which Ravel declared was "Basque in coloring." We know of no performance in his lifetime, but possibly he wrote it for his classmate at the Conservatory, Georges Enesco.
