Paintings inspired by music and music inspired by paintings

This Study Day (at Cawley Hall)  links the world of music with the visual arts. The three lectures will span over 600 years of art bringing together music inspired by art –  Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov, Respighi, Martinu and Liszt – and music by Chopin and John Field which inspired artists such as James Whistler.

The third session will explore nineteenth and twentieth century paintings that connect with specific musical works and genres from Beethoven and Schoenberg.

This promises to be a fascinating way of approaching two areas of the arts and will be illustrated with video and music as well as digital images.
