“Just as a dream, for its vividness of detail, points to an unanticipated, unreal whole, so in this work short episodes hang suspended in seeming incoherency to form a musical whole,” said Toru Takemitsu of his Dreamtime. 

Henri Dutilleux inhabited a world of sensual tonality and jazz in his first Symphony, in a way that was rare in the Puritanical climate of the 1950s. 

During his years in America, Rachmaninov returned to the first Piano Concerto he had written as a teenager in order to give it a make-over. To his regret, he was forced to admit that despite the Concerto’s youthful freshness, his American audience expected him to play his later ones.
