CSO Chamber at the Art Institute of Chicago
Sunday, October 28, 2012
The thrill of “The Orient” dug deep into 19th century sensibilities. As an architect, art dealer and designer, Frank Lloyd Wright was fascinated by the art and culture of Japan. Through his early visits to Japan’s national pavilion at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago and his lengthy sojourns in the country itself, he developed a lifelong love affair with the art of the woodblock print. His designs were forever changed by his new experiences weaving together East and West. Maurice Ravel’s starting point in the Pantoum movement of his trio comes from the Malay poetic form of the same name (a source of inspiration also for Baudelaire and Verlaine), with its isometric rhythms, alternating rhymes and simultaneous development of two themes.
