MusicUpClose - On the Brink of War

Prof Barbara L. Kelly explores music written and performed on the eve of the First World War.


It was a period of considerable experimentation, freedom and artistic confidence. European composers were challenging traditional rules of melody, harmony and form. They were also playing with size of musical forces from the huge orchestra of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring to small chamber works for just a few instruments and often voice. It is easy to forget that there was considerable musical interaction between composers from very different national traditions. The English composer, Vaughan Williams came to Paris to work with Ravel; Ravel spent time with the Russian composer, Stravinsky, and both wrote works inspired by the Austrian Schoenberg. We will hear works by a number of these composers tonight, including Ravel’s colourful Trio and Vaughan William’s lyrical On Wenlock Edge. Come and join us in an evening of live music and discussion with Barbara Kelly and musicians from sound collective and Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
