In the virtuoso Concerto, one of Ravelâs last works, he aimed to compose something âgay and brilliant.â Written at one of the unhappiest periods of his life, Stravinskyâs Symphony in C (1940) perhaps shares a stern religious sensibility with his great choral work, the Symphony of Psalms (1930). Debussyâs PrÃ©lude (1894), by contrast, offers a dappled, teasing sensuality: so striking on its first performance that the audience demanded an immediate reprise.Performers Helene Grimaud (piano).
