He considered it to be “the best thing I ever composed or shall compose”, which proved to be sadly prophetic, as Tchaikovsky died of cholera shortly after the symphony’s first performance. Ravel was a great admirer of jazz and what he described as “its rich and diverting rhythm”. Imbued with jazz influences and overflowing with exuberance, Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major also features moments of languid expressiveness and refined elegance. Currently based in Germany, New Zealand pianist Tony Chen Lin joins the CSO to perform Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major. Leonie Holmes’ Ancient Rhythms was inspired by the poem “The Journey” by Tessa Stephens and features powerful percussion and dramatic orchestral interjections.
