“Papa” Haydn was stylistic father to his immediate successors and 20th-century masters who adopted a neo-classical style. His inventive “Drumroll” Symphony is one of his finest works and might have inspired Prokofiev’s effervescent “Classical” Symphony. In this delightful work, he cleverly emulates Classical-era scoring and tone, but remains firmly in the 20th century. Ravel’s dazzling concerto also looks back to the Classical era, especially in its tender central movement, but this reverie is framed by bubbly high spirits, flashes of jazz, and sizzling virtuosity.
