"Bolero" 1s a one - movement orchestral piece by Maurice Ravel. Originally composed for the Ballet Russes. Ravel regarded the piece as an experiment in a very special limited direction, and issued a warning to the effect that what he had written was a piece lasting 17 minutes and consisting wholly of "orchestral tissue without music" - of one very long crescendo. The melody of "Bolero" is well known to many, and has been featured in popular culture, motion pictures, vido games and even Dr Who.
