“Everyone waits for everyone on an unknown but familiar infinite chessboard.”
— Shuzo Takiguchi, from his poem Yves Tanguy
Shuzo Takiguchi’s poetry inspired many works by his friend Takemitsu. Elgar dedicated his Violin Sonata in E minor to his family friend days before she passed away. Mendelssohn wrote his Violin Sonata in F major for a friend and colleague. A violinist’s hesitation prompted Janáček to revise his Violin Sonata for eight years. Jelly d’Aranyi obliged Ravel’s request to hear “gypsy folk music” late into the night, inspiring the Tzigane.
Violinist Tosca Opdam performs music united by the theme of creative relationships, alongside pianist Matthew Graybil and dressed in a bespoke gown by haute couture designer Paul Schulten.
