Music in the Great Art Collections of Europe
Lecture | The Menuhin Hall
Wednesday 20 February 2013
Many great small European art collections are tucked away in side streets, country houses and provincial towns, known only to connoisseurs and local communities. Important paintings, musical instruments and pictures with musical content are explored by Peter Medhurst in some of these quality galleries. He looks at the contents of Burghley House, the Mauritshuis, the Fitzwilliam Museum, the Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Vleeshuis, and the Ca' Rezzonico, illustrating his lecture throughout with music.
This event has been organised by a local support group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
