"Where have I heard that before?”
“That sounds familiar!"
Listener's love to play the game of association. This program includes pairs of works that are quite unrelated, yet unintentionally—or intentionally?—linked by similar motives or themes. In placing movements of different works next to each other, we highlight moments of subconscious influences, secret quotation, or mere coincidence.
