A beloved work by a composer who experienced Alzheimer’s disease late in his life.
JOHN MACKEY: Places we can no longer go

MAURICE RAVEL: Bolero
Ravel’s most famous work features two melodies repeated over and over again for more than 15 minutes. Some believe the composer’s sudden obsession with repetition was an early manifestation of a neurodegenerative condition.
