The sixth installment in the annual Athenaeum lecture-concert series exploring the interrelationship between music and the visual arts, "Meccas of Music and Art in the 20th Century" will focus on the particular European and American cities that drew composers, artists and intellectuals from all over the world into their unique and compelling cultural contexts at critical moments during the course of the 20th century.
Ms. Martino will discuss the impact of politics and society on the creative climate in these centers that led in each case to a renaissance of the arts. The overwhelming complexity and diversity of artistic styles and trends in the 20th century will be revealed and examined through the juxtaposition of a powerpoint presentation of seminal art works representing the dominant schools and tendencies with performances of the most significant works in the violin-piano repertoire by major composers.
