Sunday 27th October 2019
Dulwich Picture Gallery and Rembrandt’s Light

The Gallery house over 600 works rich in European Masterpieces including Rembrandt, Canaletto and Poussin. Our visit will include a visit to the special exhibition opening in October - Rembrandt’s Light

2019 is The Year of Rembrandt with celebrations taking place throughout Europe to mark 350 years since the artist’s death (1669). Dulwich Picture Gallery will stage London’s Rembrandt moment with an innovative exhibition that aims to refresh the way that we look at works by this incomparable Dutch Master. Along with many firsts, this show will bring the captivating painting Philemon and Baucis (National Gallery of Art, Washington) to the UK for the first time. ‘Rembrandt’s Light’ will bring together 35 carefully selected international loans that focus on Rembrandt’s mastery of light and visual storytelling, concentrating on his greatest years from 1639-1658, when he lived in his ideal house at Breestraat in the heart of Amsterdam (today the Museum Het Rembrandthuis).

Radlett Horticultural Society

Radlett Museum

Radlett Music Club
John Suchet - Tchaikovsky - The Man Revealed
Thursday 10th October - 8pm Radlett Centre

John Suchet of ClassicFM fame makes a welcome return to Radlett. This time he will be talking about his most recent book “Tchaikovsky – The Man Revealed” – a tortured genius, a sensitive soul, and a great composer burdened by the weight of his private desires.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s life – and premature death – has long been mythologised and misunderstood. John Suchet draws back the curtain to show us the real man behind the music.

Discounted copies of John’s books will be available at the concert and can be signed by him.

Non-member admission charge for this concert - £16.

For further details and how to book see www.radlett-music-club.co.uk
