Part of the Shakespeare 400 series

As part of the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Shakespeare 400 series, they will be putting on a series of talk and concerts to celebrate the life and times of the Bard. On the 10th of February there will be a special double-billing prior to their performance of The Tempest. Program: - New Horizons (05:00pm) GCSE student composers showcase new music that they have written, inspired by Sibelius’s The Tempest. Part of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s New Horizons Education And Community Programme. - Talk By Gordon McMullan (06:00pm) An artist’s final works are often perceived as having a special significance, whether created in the later years of a long and fruitful life, or near the end of one cut tragically short. In this free event, a panel of experts – a literary scholar, an art historian and two leading musicologists examine the idea of "late style" and its association with the last works of creative minds both in old age and earlier, including Sibelius, Beethoven, Titian, de Kooning and of course, William Shakespeare.
