In a Suite for Two Pianos, German choreographer Uwe Scholz (1958-2004) created movements inspired by the reflections of plastic artist Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) and Russian music Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943). Four works by Kandinsky are projected to the bottom of the scene by broadening the relationship between the different arts. Uwe was a choreographer who mirrored in dance the structure, dynamics and intensions of music.
