Paintings Inspired by Music and Music Inspired by Paintings.

Nottingham Trent University, Conference Centre
This Study Day looks at how one medium has the extraordinary power to inspire another. The lecture, which spans over 600 years of the arts, analyses a range of related works, bringing together the music of Martinu with the frescoes of Piero della Francesca, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus with Respighi’s Trittico botticelliano, Bocklin’s Isle of the Dead with Rachmaninoff’s symphonic poem and Poet Mondrian’s Boogie Woogie with the piano playing of Albert Ammons.
Peter Medhurst appears in the UK and abroad as a musician and scholar, giving recitals and delivering illustrated lectures on music and the arts. He studied singing and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Many of you have already had the pleasure of experiencing one of Peter’s one hour lectures last year.
