Jeux d’eau is a piece for solo piano by Maurice Ravel. The title is often translated as Fountains, Playing water or literally Water Games. While writing it, Ravel was a student of Gabriel Fauré, to whom the piece is dedicated. Ricardo Viñes was the first to publicly perform the work in 1902. The piece was inspired by Franz Liszt's piece Les jeux d'eau à la Villa d'Este. Written on the manuscript by Ravel, and often included on published editions, is the text "Dieu fluvial riant de l'eau qui le chatouille..." a quote from Henri de Régnier's Cité des eaux, which in English editions is sometimes translated to "River god laughing as the water tickles him...".
