About the Event

In his bicentenary year, the Sage of Coniston is being remembered for his roles as: social reformer, art critic, gifted artist and champion of Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, but his interest in music is little known.

In this special event, we shine a light on this, quoting from Ruskin’s own writings and his contemporaries, and illustrating this with music, in the spirit of Michael Berkeley’s popular Radio 3 programme Private Passions.

The programme includes: a newly commissioned work by William Marshall setting Ruskin’s poetry to music, music by Ruskin, Bellini, Berkeley, Mozart, Oakeley, Ravenscroft, Beethoven, Corelli and Mendelssohn.

Michael Berkeley, presenter

Jennifer Witton, soprano

Kieran Rayner, baritone

Emily Sun, violin

Ashley Fripp, piano

General Admission £20
