Highlights of English Musical Heritage | 20/11/2018 | 4:00 -6:00

Highlights of English Musical Heritage

For music lovers who are not necessarily musicians, the library presents a series of sessions aiming at illustrating  the heritage of English Classical Music in its most specific and beautiful forms, mainly vocal music. Each session will focus on a composer, with a short presentation of the work and the composer, followed by the listening of selected pieces through  selected  videos, often with different interpretations. The point is to share comments and criticism with the group members.

This session will be a special session celebrating Henry Purcell focusing on his “Ode to Sainte Cecilia”. The activity will also feature live harpsichord music by Sebastian Maugenest.

These sessions are free and open to the public. Please let Michel Cartillier know if you will be present by sending an email to this address.
