WEDGEWOOD Gainsborough’s Music

Gainsborough’s Music

The age of Wedgewood and Thomas Gainsborough. Certainly London had the most civilized and evolved society in 18th century Europe. No threats of revolution at home, and a healthy and growing middle class hungry to hear music in concert.

Thomas Gainsborough loved music. His daughter married an oboist and Gainsborough made magnificent portraits of the most important and influential musicians of his time. This program presents the London of Wedgwood and Gainsborough through music that is tender, civil, always beautiful. Including songs from Garrick's productions of Shakespeare.

Gainsborough has given us images of the most important composers in the most civilized of European cities in the mid 18th century. Portraits of JC Bach, Abel, and the Linley family are as sweet and elegant as the music that accompanied Shakespeare plays and delighted audiences in the first public concert series. A feast of the imagination!

With Pascale Beaudin, soprano, Kathie Stewart, flute, Charles Brink, flute Olivier Brault & Adriane Post, violin Kyle Miller, viola, Loretta O’Sullivan, cello, Andrew Appel, harpsichord.

Four Nations concerts and programs are possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
