This article reviews the Piano Concerto in G major by Maurice Ravel, which is a creative testament of the composer. The Concerto unites the ideas of the game and the beauty, the most important ones according to the composer’s thinking. In the first movement, Ravel invites us to “a game with genre,” in which the canons of the genre are both preserved and violated at the same time. The second movement introduces us to “a game with styles.” The third movement is “a game with the self,” because Ravel puts together a mosaic of musical themes that are clearly associated with his earlier works. The composer’s games open the opportunity for the audience to touch on the ephemeral world of beauty and charm and to see the Magic garden of our true life. The path to these worlds is the revelation and a gift offered by the dandy composer.
