  • Dr Charlotte de Mille - The Courtauld Institute of Art

This afternoon’s programme reflects works in our permanent collection, taking particular inspiration from Biagio d’Antonio’Morelli-Nerli chests (1472) and Tahitian works by Paul Gauguin, Nevermore and Te Rerioa (1897). It is performed by musicians from Young Classical Artists Trust, our neighbours at Somerset House. John Dowland’s Forlorn Hope Fancy is one of the earliest chromatic fantasias, a musical form which emerged in 16th century Europe, often for performance in domestic settings. Britten’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid (1951) reflects the abiding inspiration of Ovid’s texts. Lastly Ravel’s String Quartet in F major (1903) is a musical counterpart to works by Ravel’s Impressionist friends, the second movement’s gamelan motifs recalling Gauguin’s Tahitian paintings.
