The connection between colour and music goes back to Aristotle, and composers have conceived music as colour ever since. Using piano demonstrations and a trove of audio excerpts, Jonathan James will illustrate how music – keys, tonalities, chords and tone – can be ‘seen’ and how colour, for some late Romantics and early modernists, became the frontier for exciting exploration.

Dr Jonathan James is a music educator and writer who lectures in concert halls throughout the UK, presenting for orchestras and BBC Radio 3. He also runs creative workshops and directs the Bristol Pre-Conservatoire, an evening school for talented young musicians.

This event will take place at The Broadway Museum on the High Street

Tickets will go on sale to the general public through the website on Good Friday (April 10th) at 10am and up to three prior for Benefactors of the festival.
