* GenreDeconstruction: The waltz genre gets deconstructed in ''La Valse''. It really shows in the music toward the end, the waltz is increasingly discordant in its harmony and disjointed in its rhythm and tempo, and the ending is left unresolved. Although Ravel states otherwise, you'd be forgiven to think that this is all a portrayal of 19th Century Vienna and its eventual destruction in usefulNotes/WorldWarI.

* NurseryRhyme / FracturedFairyTale: Forms the basis of the ballet suite ''Ma Mère l'Oye," aka "Mother Goose."

to:

* LastNoteNightmare: "Bolero" can come across as this. The last time the melody comes in, it is stronger, with much of the orchestra playing the theme, or counter melodies that seem wild. In some recordings, this section comes across as significantly louder. Some of the stated counter melodies also change the chords to dissonant ones. The song is major until then.
