The Bach Players are coming to play at Hatchlands on 7th of May. They explore the Italian influence on French composers in late 17th-century France, celebrating the 350th anniversary of the birth of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre in particular. She was a child prodigy, born into an important family of musicians, and played the harpsichord before King Louis XIV.

Titian, Nymph and Shepherd, 1576

"It is not bright colors but good drawing that makes figures beautiful."

Listen to the final works of Beethoven – the last string quartets or the Ninth Symphony and you hear a wholly different composer. Whether that difference came from Beethoven's encroaching deafness, a philosophical epiphany born of a lifetime of experience, or both, will always be a subject for debate.

Symphony No. 9 ~ Beethoven

In "Late Titian and the Sensuality of Painting", the last 25 years of Titian's life undergo a similar debate. Did Titian's new, freer brushwork originate from his failing vision and dexterity, the insights of age, both, or neither?
