Jeux d’eau (pronounced: ) is a piece for solo piano by Maurice Ravel. The title is often translated as "Fountains," "Playing water" or literally "Water Games" (see Jeux d'eau, water features in gardens). At the time of writing Jeux d'eau, Ravel was a student of Gabriel Fauré, to whom the piece is dedicated. Pianist Ricardo Viñes was the first to publicly perform the work in 1902, although it had been privately performed for Les Apaches previously.
