Inspired by our current exhibition Joshua Reynolds Experiments in Paint, join us for an evening of music in our newly refurbished Great Gallery. Renowned soprano Dame Emma Kirkby, Maggie Cole (fortepiano), Catherine Mackintosh (violin) & Sebastian Comberti (cello) will perform music chosen to reflect the taste of Reynolds's circle.
Soprano Dame Emma Kirkby, described as 'one of the treasures of the world of music' (Toronto Globe and Mail), has performed worldwide in internationally acclaimed orchestras and to date has made over 100 recordings.
The evening includes a private view and tour of the exhibition with curator Hayley Flynn and a wine reception. The concert will also incorprate an 'in conversation' between Haley, the musicians and broadcaster and musician Iain Burnside, to explore the connections between the concert programme and Reynolds.
