Henry Moore: Sculpting Musical Friendships

Henry Moore: Sculpting Musical Friendships

The Marylebone Music Festival returns to the Wallace Collection for a Chamber Music Concert celebrating the current exhibition, Henry Moore: The Helmet Heads. As the most influential Sculptor of the twentieth century, Henry Moore’s genius also influenced other realms of the arts. He was a great friend of Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, both of whom Moore was able to assist in the creation of their now internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival. Moore also had a close friendship with Igor Stravinsky, who was regularly invited to his home ‘Hoglands’ in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, for tea. This evening’s concert will reflect these friendships with the programme: Britten String Quartet No.3 Op.94, Stravinsky Three Pieces for String Quartet. The final performance of the evening will be Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence, Op. 70, to honor Florence, the city where one of Moore’s greatest inspirations, Michelangelo, worked and lived.

Performers Benjamin Nabarro, Natalie Klouda -Violins, Garfield Jackson, Meghan Cassidy -Violas, Gemma Rosefield, Ashok Klouda - Cellos
