Join renowned recitalist Peter Medhurst, broadcasting live from his music room in London, for the second installment in a series of interactive conversations that will explore the musical tones of European Art History between 1600 and 1750. Many of the greatest painters in history have invoked the world of music into the heart of many of their paintings resulting in a harmonious combination of two much-loved disciplines of the arts. 

Artistic masterpieces we will dive deeper into together include works by Gregorio Lazzarini, Vermeer, Hendrick Cornelisz van Vliet, Jacques-Francois Courtin, and Anon. However, the viewer of these thoughtfully crafted scenes should always be a little on their guard, since references to music are invariably laced with powerful allusion and complex symbolism. 

With a musicologist's keen eye, Peter Medhurst will lead us in discussing and analyzing a range of magnificent paintings that stem from the Baroque era of European history. To add a further dimension to the conversation, he will be complementing the paintings discussed with a selection of period music played live by him on the harpsichord, the virginals, and the organ. 

For more on this topic, we hope you’ll have joined us for the first part of this series – Music in Art: Tones of the European Renaissance with Peter Medhurst

Peter Medhurst appears in the UK and abroad as musician and scholar, giving recitals and delivering illustrated lectures on music and the arts. He studied composition and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music in London, and singing with Erik Werba at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

He lectures for The Arts Society, The National Trust, and The Art Fund. Peter also leads tours abroad to places like Venice, Rome, Berlin, Vienna, and Madrid, and as part of the time spent exploring these places he gives organ recitals on the historic instruments in the various cathedrals and churches.
