A concert which invites the listener to discover four very diverse approaches over this key period of the beginning of 20th century.

How we can associate jazz and classicism with Gershwin and Ravel? How we can revolutionise the musical language without going to the atonality of Debussy and Ravel? And how we can take advantage of the ideas of romanticism up to its ultimate pinnacle with Respighi?
