Visual art has always inspired music. In this concert, Goodensemble present a series of musical works that are in one way or another connected to the visual art world. We begin with three operatic overtures to King Arthur, Fairy Queen, and Armide respectively, all of which tell the stories of figures who have been painted and re-imagined through the centuries by artists.
And it is not just the overtures. The concert also showcases a wonderful selection of opera arias from the Age of the Enlightenment and Baroque periods, all with intricate links to subjects that were once popular amongst the artistic circles.
Mussorgsky’s famous Pictures at an Exhibition needs no introduction, but do you know some of the pictures that once inspired the composer are now lost? Alongside the original pictures to be projected during the concert, we have invited a roster of contemporary artists to respond to the music and re-imagine these now-lost pictures, with a modern twist. Come and find out!
Tickets: £12 (£10 concs)
