Penny Lecture | Musicians in the Shadow of War and Tyranny

Radio 3 presenter Rob Cowan illustrates some of the most interesting, and occasionally harrowing, examples of great musicians caught in the midst of serious conflict.


The destructive spectre of war and tyranny in the 20th century, with all its attendant complications - whether in terms of collaboration, censorship or even deportation to death camps – is something that has been comprehensively documented on both disc and tape.
Radio 3 presenter Rob Cowan illustrates some of the most interesting, and occasionally harrowing, examples of great musicians caught in the midst of serious conflict.
This lecture forms part of our newly revived Penny Lectures to celebrate Morley College's 125th anniversary. The Penny Lectures began in 1882 at the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo. Topics were chosen to encourage new thinking and ideas and provided illustrated lectures at affordable prices…a penny!
