    • Arts

This is part two of our brief and fragmentary exploration of music inspired by artists and their paintings and we open with the aria That was You Know I Want To Help You from composer Bernard Rand's 2010 opera Vincent.
Also featured:
Hungarian composer Sandor Veress was so taken by the work of Swiss artist Paul Klee that he wrote a seven part suite called Homage to Paul Klee to express his admiration.
In his 1990 opera Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara took scenes from the life of Vincent van Gogh starting in the mental hospital at Saint-Rémy, where he painted The Starry Night. The story moves back and forth in time through his memories Rautavaara took material from this opera to create his Sixth Symphony, Vincentiana.
