Free pre-concert event: Shakespeare400
Gordon McMullan, Academic Director Shakespeare400
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.
Presented by Professor Gordon McMullan, King’s College London, Academic Director Shakespeare400, Professor David Amigoni, Keele University, Professor Laura Tunbridge, St Catherine’s College Oxford and Professor Daniel Grimley, Merton College Oxford.
