Did you know?

'Lanaikea' means "immeasurable celestial paradise" in Hawaiian and is the name of a supercluster of galaxies that inspired Pépin's work.

Brahms' Symphony No.3 has been borrowed by artists ranging from Frank Sinatra (for song 'Take My Love') to Santana (for 'Love of my Life'). The famous third movement, Poco allegretto, has inspired tributes and been used in popular culture across movies, TV shows and more!
