 NotesRavel, at the peak of fame and popularity, had just returned from a triumphant tour of the United States when he began this concerto.

Ravel wrote that the work was "a concerto in the strict sense, written in the spirit of Mozart and Saint-Saëns... I had intended to call this concerto a ′Divertissement', then it occurred to me that there was no need to do so because the very title ′Concerto′ should be sufficiently clear... In some ways, my concerto is not unlike my Violin Sonata; it uses certain effects borrowed from jazz, but only in moderation."
