    An Artistic Ménagerie: Collaborations of Mind, Hand and Imagerie

    Enjoy an afternoon of music for piano four hands and voice with piano. The pieces chosen showcase images from two extremes, ballet and nature, in music from Paris between 1900 and 1926. This is a fertile period for visual and musical experiment, introduced by experts with a wealth of images from ballet including period stage sets and costumes by Picasso and Leger from both the Russian and Swedish Ballets. This event offers wide appeal to lovers of history, painting, costumes and sets, fine singing and playing, and will be of interest to families with children.
