Music and Museum: British Modernism
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 20 AT 6 PMBuy Tickets
Sculptors Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore are regarded as the most important sculptors in Modern British art. The bond between this friendly rival duo inspired this month's Music and Museum performance. Journey back in time as the Bechtler Ensemble performs selections from Britain's central 20th-century musical figures, including composer Benjamin Britten and less known charming romantic composers such as Elizabeth Maconchy, Ethel Smyth, and Ernest John Moeran.
