Organized in the spirit of a playlist, the selection of works both connect and contrast with one another. From Toru Takemitsu’s ‘celestially light’ Rain Tree Sketch II (1992) and the Parisian spirit of Germaine Tailleferre Sicilienne (1928) to Rachmaninoff’s passionate Etude Tableaux 5 (1916) and the virtuosity of Karen Tanaka’s Techno Etude No. 1 (2000) and Serge Prokofiev’s Toccata (1911.)
