Musical Postcards - Europe

Friday 10.15 - 12.15

Got your baggage packed? Let’s get on the Eurostar at St Pancras International, but not without some appropriate music by Paul Patterson written to launch the Eurostar service to Europe. From there this course will take passage via the Channel Islands through France and Spain to a number of destinations, all the while looking for specific pieces of music that depicted local scenes. So from John Ireland’s Sarnia to Delius’s musical take of Paris, the Great City. Students will be encouraged to then make a choice as to which other European countries they visit. The series of lectures will be illustrated by music and video clips.
