Monday 15 April 2019. Janet Canetty-Clarke on ‘From Romanticism into Impressionism in Music and Painting’

Beethoven (1770 -1827) in music and his contemporary in painting, Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) lived across a period of enormous development in the Arts. The lecturer will discuss how they both expanded into the world of colour using excellent orchestral examples and power-point illustrations.

We shall then progress into the Romantic Period focusing on the music of Chopin (1809-1849) illustrated by the lecturer at the keyboard, matching his music to the paintings of his dear friend, Delacroix (1799-1863).

Finally, we shall explore Impressionism, with the exquisite music of Debussy (1862-1918) matched to the much loved paintings of Monet (1840-1918).

This will be a Study Day to look, listen and learn.

Starting at 10am, the morning session will be divided by a 10 min comfort stop.

There will be a lunch break of one hour.  Lunch will be provided.

The afternoon session will run straight through, ending at 3pm.

There will be moments for the lecturer to answer questions.
