A new recording with Riccardo Chailly, a top classical conductor, and Stefano Bollani, a top jazz pianist is an exciting programme focused on the magic of the 30s: a decade full of energy and creativity, in which several top classical composers were strongly influenced by such modern trends like jazz, tango, and fox-trot. The programme of Ravel, Stravinsky, Weill, and De Sabata features classical pieces with strong jazz influences: a feature that the two artists, with their unique skills, and truly highlight.
