As part of select Masterworks Series performances, the Columbus Symphony and Columbus Museum of Art will collaborate in a series of afternoon lectures that pair chamber music performances by Symphony musicians with works from the CMA art collection. The presentations will focus on specific periods being presented in the upcoming CSO Masterworks concerts and explore the common themes and aesthetic influences between music and visual art.
Mozart to Matisse: The Natural World—19th Century British Art and Design
November 8, 2:00–3:00 PM
Join CMA Curator Sarah Berenz and Columbus Symphony Orchestra members for the first Mozart to Matisse program of the 2023–2024 season featuring selections from Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. Nineteenth-century British artists were fascinated with the natural world as is depicted in art spanning from J.M.W. Turner to William Morris. Join us for a brief lecture on the subject which will give context for the performance by the Columbus Symphony.
Tickets are $5 for members, $20 for nonmembers.
