Mozart to Matisse
Presented by Columbus Symphony Orchestra and Columbus Museum of Art

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 Flourishing Line—18th-Century Rococo Art
May 8, 2:00–3:00 PM

Join the Columbus Museum of Art and Columbus Symphony Orchestra for an afternoon of visual art and music. The Rococo style of the eighteenth century was full of rebellion, with artists such as François Boucher, Thomas Gainsborough, and Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun eschewing established artistic traditions and producing elaborate paintings. A discussion on these artists and others, including designers of decorative arts from the period, will be followed by music that compliments this ornate visual style.

Tickets are $5 for members, $20 for nonmembers.
