Art and Music appreciation
The Art and Music group looks at pictures with musical instruments included. We discuss the details and offer our own observations, with some background information from me, with some members liking the picture and occasionally not liking it!
We talk about the instrument(s) seen in the picture and then listen to relevant music in which the instrument was to the fore. Sometimes I introduce a second picture. Artists range from the well-known like Degas and Vermeer to lesser-known artists such as Judith Leyster and Christian Boettcher. Music ranges from Bach, Mozart and Bizet to Hindemith and Ligeti (both well received!)
We have focused on the different periods of Medieval music and art and on through to the Romantic period and the 20th and 21st centuries.
The dates of the next course are Feb 4th-March 17th. We meet in my house - Sarum House, Union Rd, Crediton EX17 3AL 10.15am - 12.15. We share costs of coffee and tea.
Please contact me if you would like to join, by phone or the "carrier pigeon" opposite.
