  • Dr Charlotte de Mille - The Courtauld Institute of Art

Taking inspiration from works on display by Modigliani, Heckel, Kirchener and Pechstein, this afternoon’s music programme explores the multiple ways in which composers and artists sought to re-define their media. Both art forms re-forged the abstraction, rhythmic and tonal complexities of pre-war work into non-musical sound and found objects, compound works more suited to a world torn apart by war.

Edgar Varèse Octandre (1923)
