Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 witnesses a young person's emotional tremor – a beautiful and strongly dramatic example of the genre. In Ravel's ballet, everything is like a game: seduction, abduction, pirates, nymphs, and two young people, who thrive in their own love with a truly French-like tenderness.
