A concert evening with a program of musical works which brings together a highly varied set of influences. Maurice Ravel's “La Valse” alone combines three different styles:
1. the typical Viennese waltz in swaying three-four time;
2. the French valse, also in three-four time, but played strictly on the beat;
3. a military march in gruff two-four time.

You can hear a lot of jazz influences in Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major, but in the second movement, there is also a clarity which calls to mind the First Viennese School, as well as a touch of Chopin. Stravinsky’s ballet music “Le sacre du printemps” quotes several Eastern European folk melodies. There’s a link between the work and La Valse, as Ravel originally planned his work as a ballet.
