Diverse Encounters: Opening Reception and Recital

Post  laylabloom on Tue Jun 03, 2014 9:51 am

Opening reception and preview of works for this special display which takes place across two University sites - The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery and The Foyer Gallery of the Clothworkers Hall - and unites the work of painter Ann Seabourne and composer Peter Seabourne.

The Alhambra, Granada is at the heart of this unique event, which simultaneously presents interrelated visual and musical compositions, inspired by experiences of this  intensely evocative location.

Since separate visits, four years ago, an ongoing dialogue between musical and visual forms has developed, cross -pollinating in a variety of ways, constantly challenging and re-generating  independent interpretations, which, like the Alhambra itself, have become multi -layered in colour, mood and meaning.

The Preview Event and Premiere Recital will take place on Sunday 15th June in the Foyer Gallery of the Clothworkers Hall, School of Music, University of Leeds

This afternoon event will be in ' three movements'

From 1.30pm -  Private View of the exhibition in the Foyer Gallery of the Clothworkers Hall.

3.00pm - A dialogue between composer and painter, exploring their diverse encounters, followed  by a Spanish themed recital including the premiere of the piano cycle 'Arabesques'' with projected  images of related paintings, performed by Michael Bell. Tickets for this event can be purchased here.

An accompanying CD,' Steps Vol. 3: Arabesques' and an illustrated book, detailing the evolution of the project will be on sale.
