I'm trying to learn this amazing piece. Bar 14 has time signature 5/8 in my edition changing to 6/8 3/4 at bar 16; bar 99 has time signature 6/8 3/4. Obviously bars 99-100 are restating the theme from 14-15 in a different key, and are otherwise identical. To interpret the earlier bars in 5/8, one has to interpret the last three eighth notes as a triplet, I guess? And at 99 they are regular eighth notes?
My question is, did Ravel make a mistake signing bars 14-15 in 5/8? Did he really intend 6/8?
