Book Soundtrack {3} : The Bad Beginning and Ravel

I started my own Music Monday last year. I was inspired by all the bloggers out there putting books to music. Since these are two of my loves, I kinda ran with it. Still trying to figure out if I want to give myself the option to do posts like these any time of the week!

Here is an retro-post I did for The Bad Beginning.

About the Book
"Make no mistake. The Bad Beginning begins badly for the three Baudelaire children, and then gets worse."

I read this book by Lemony Snicket years ago (as well as the other 12) and I loved the ridiculously dark humor. The story didn't seem to be set during modern times so I thought of  a classical piece for this week. Please enjoy Ravel's String Quartet in F Major.






About the Artist
Maurice Ravel (1875-1937) was a French composer known for his innovative, virtuosic orchestral pieces whose tonality couldn't exactly be put in any certain category (somewhere between Impressionist and Modernist). In other words, he was like, super awesome and didn't want to confine himself to one specific way of creating music around the turn of the 19th century like all the other French composers. If you dig classical music as much as I do, check out some other pieces by Ravel or hit up this cool website with more info!
