The London Philharmonic Orchestra and Royal Academy of Arts join forces to present Music in the Courtyard on Saturday 1 September, a unique outdoor concert that celebrates Impressionist masterpieces from the realms of visual arts and orchestral music, with kind support from JTI.
The concert, in the Courtyard of the Royal Academy, will feature Impressionist music programmed to complement the Royal Academy’s exhibition From Paris: A Taste For Impressionism which includes masterpieces by Manet, Monet, Pissarro, Degas, Sisley and Morisot, and Renoir.
Danielle de Niese, described as ‘opera’s coolest soprano’ by the New York Times magazine, takes centre stage to sing Duparc’s Mélodies, and violinist Simone Lamsma, regarded as one of the leading artists of her generation, joins the Orchestra to perform Chausson’s Poème, both under the baton of French conductor Fabien Gabel.
Tickets are £12 and are available exclusively through a ballot system, open until Friday 6 July.
