The Impressionist movement of the late nineteenth century represented a new way of seeing the world. A radical concept at the time, Impressionism captured ephemeral light effects in sketch-like scenes of modern life. Classical music created in the same era also used “color” or timbre to arouse feelings with evocative harmonies and dramatic ebbs and flows.
On Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 7:00 – 8:30 pm, the husband and wife team of Christopher Campbell, an artist, and Nancy Locke, an art historian, will be the counterparts to acclaimed pianist Boris Berman in a virtual Bruce Presents webinar via Zoom exploring the intersection of Impressionist painting and music. Moderated by Robert Wolterstorff, The Susan E. Lynch Executive Director of the Bruce Museum, this dynamic discussion will feature a live performance by Berman, who will be playing select pieces by French composer Claude Debussy to highlight linkages with works by Cézanne, Pissarro, and other French Impressionists.
Admission to See Hear: Revealing the Links Between Impressionist Art and Music is $20; Museum members and students receive a 20% discount.
