    Maurice Ravel shared the vogue for all aspects of Spain as an enclave of the East within the West which had gripped Paris since the nineteenth century and fuelled the imaginations of artists such as Edouard Manet and Hector Berlioz. During this period, Paris was the capital of the arts and attracted many foreign composers who formed a sizeable Spanish colony, which also included several painters. Juan Gris, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró rubbed shoulders with Isaac Albéniz and Manuel de Falla. De Falla swiftly integrated himself into Parisian musical circles where he met Debussy, Ravel and Dukas. Ravel has steeped himself in Spanish culture, folklore, and history in this exciting fusion of influences.
