Ruskin and Music

December 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

£5 – £16

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
ROSL Members and Friends of ROSL ARTS £16
