In the virtuoso Concerto, one of Ravel’s last works, he aimed to compose something ‘gay and brilliant.’ Written at one of the unhappiest periods of his life, Stravinsky’s Symphony in C (1940) perhaps shares a stern religious sensibility with his great choral work, the Symphony of Psalms (1930). Debussy’s Prélude (1894), by contrast, offers a dappled, teasing sensuality: so striking on its first performance that the audience demanded an immediate reprise.
