Maurice Ravel was a French composer, pianist and conductor. He is often associated with impressionism along with his elder contemporary Claude Debussy. In the 1920s and 1930s Ravel was internationally regarded as France's greatest living composer. The Chansons madécasses (Madagascan Songs) is a collection of three art songs by Maurice Ravel written between 1925 and 1926 for voice (mezzo-soprano or baritone), flute, cello and piano with words from the poetry collection Chansons madécasses (fr) by Évariste de Parny. The song cycle consists of the three titles "Nahandove", "Aoua", and "Il est doux". They are dedicated to the American musician and philanthropist Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge.
