Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances looks both backwards and forwards, blending the endless melodies of his Romantic style with stark moments of modernity and whispers of jazz. It was his final work. The score to Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 was lost in the Russian Revolution, but Prokofiev rewrote it from memory, restoring one of the most virtuosic works ever composed for piano. Hannah Kendall’s The Spark Catchers is filled with joy, ferocity, and sorrow as it depicts the women who worked in match factories in 19th-century Britain.
