Cage, John

It was Cage’s Piano Concerto that prompted Lutosławski to introduce an element of chance into his own compositions and create his controlled aleatory technique. As a thank-you gesture for this inspiration, which came via a radio broadcast, Lutosławski sent the composer of 4’33’’ the manuscript of Venetian Games (1961).
