The artist's inspiration can come from many sources: beautiful landscapes and nature, his or her own fortunate or unfortunate life story, dedicatees, and - probably most notoriously - from passionate love.

In the Axiom Quartet's newest program, all these inspirations mix into an eclectic, fascinating thread: from Landscapes by Ernest Bloch to Leos Janacek's String Quartet No.2 Intimate Letters written at the mature age of 63 and dedicated to a woman 37 years his junior. From Beethoven's Razumovsky quartet dedicated to one of the composer's most devoted supporters, to Bedrich Smetana's String Quartet No.1 From My Life, whose title's connection to the theme does not need explanation. The Axiom Quartet tells the story of The Muse throughout the evening.
