Ravel    Valses nobles et sentimentales 
Gershwin    Concerto in F 
Rachmaninov     Symphony No3 

New worlds for old. George Gershwin once asked Maurice Ravel to teach him how to compose – he didn’t realise that Ravel was actually his greatest fan! Few living musicians conduct both of them with the sheer, irresistible flair of John Wilson, just as no-one plays Gershwin’s swinging Piano Concerto more brilliantly than Louis Schwizgebel. And finally, big-band glamour meets the Russian soul in Rachmaninov’s fabulous Third Symphony. If you’ve never heard it, you’ll soon wonder why.
