“Music is an indispensable part of my life.” Reading Haruki Murakami’s work can feel like flipping through his legendarily expansive record collection, and readers can easily come across countless references to music in his novels. This lecture-recital will highlight Murakami’s passion for classical music and feature works from his playlist. Renowned music writer Dr. Yuan-Pu Chiao and musicians from the Taiwan Philharmonic will guide the audience through a literary and musical journey to decipher Murakami’s mastery of intertextual references.
