DURATION 105’ plus interval

In his bicentenary year, the Sage of Coniston is being remembered worldwide for his roles as a social reformer, revered art critic, a gifted artist and champion of Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, but his interest in music is little known. In this special LDSM event, we will shine a light on this, quoting extensively from Ruskin’s own writings and those of his contemporaries, and illustrating this with music, in the spirit of Michael Berkeley’s popular Radio 3 programme Private Passions. The programme will include a LDSM-commissioned work by William Marshall setting Ruskin’s poetry to music… and music by Ruskin himself, together with Bellini, Berkeley, Mozart, Oakeley, Ravenscroft, Beethoven, Corelli and Mendelssohn.
