*Please note a change to the soloist from originally advertised.

When he started work on a score that would ‘take full advantage of advances in modern orchestration’, few would have expected the resulting piece by Camille Saint-Saëns to use a traditional instrument like the organ to such earth-shattering effect. But the composer might have been referring to the piano, played by four hands, that ripples its way so enchantingly through the ‘Organ’ Symphony as a delicate counterpoint to the organ’s thundering chords. Saint-Saëns’s younger compatriot Maurice Ravel saw a completely different use for the piano when he walked the streets of Harlem and, on hearing the wild syncopations and exotic blue notes spilling from the jazz bars, was inspired to write his toe-tapping Piano Concerto.
