Bach, Broadway and Escher [Event Cancelled] (Closed)

Course Description:

The symmetries between art and music abound and there is no better example of this than the relationship between the intriguing works of Dutch artist M. C. Escher and a number of counterparts in music. Join us as we analyze the fugues and canons of Bach, Bartok and Mozart, as well as musical theatre classics "Oklahoma", "The Music Man", "Guys and Dolls", and "West Side Story" alongside Escher’s works to uncover how art and music align. Of additional interest will be “The Lamb” by English composer John Tavener, a piece loaded with symmetries that you can simultaneously hear and see.
