  3. Andante festivo, for string quartet - Jean Sibelius

An afternoon concert of music and talk. What can we learn from pictorial representations of musicians throughout the ages? What does the word ‘harmony’ mean to artists? Why does music trigger the visualisation of colours for some people (synaesthesia) and how has this affected composers?

Guiding us through these questions and others are Dr. Tim Shephard and Professor Simon Shaw-Miller from the University of Sheffield and Bristol respectively, contributors to the Routledge Companion to Music and Visual Culture and facilitator Kim Streets, Chief Executive for Museums in Sheffield, with members of Ensemble 360 on hand to play music by synaesthetic composers Franz Liszt and Jean Sibelius.

Complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits will be served from 1.30pm
