Ravel, who heard jazz in Harlem with Gershwin, was utterly dazzled by Rhapsody in Blue, which Gershwin played at a birthday party for the French composer. The jazz-influenced Concerto for the Left Hand was written for a pianist grievously injured during the First World War. La Valse pays homage to the Viennese waltz and suggests a furious farewell to gentility in post-war Europe.
