He was a fairly reticent individual, like his music. Interestingly known to have no (known) romantic or sexual relationships, much to the composer's chagrin and loneliness, although he was surrounded by a rather large circle of faithful friends and followers, who would later support his last 4 years when he was affected by a neurological illness that prevented him from playing or writing any other music. After a failed operation, he died after falling into a coma. His death was greatly and unanimously grieved in the artistic circle - a year after his death, the ''Revue Musicale'' published a special edition containing around a hundred articles paying homage to the late composer.

* 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.
