Learning Adult Learning Talks & Study Days The cradle songs of my grief: death and life in the music of Brahms Johannes Brahms is often said to have been agnostic in matters of faith, and to have been a composer of 'absolute music' (commonly, but mistakenly, defined as music which is 'about' nothing) This evening, blending music, images, and lecture, reassesses both these claims explores the rich connections between the music of Brahms and contemporary culture, including the visual arts, and features performances drawn from the last pieces Brahms wrote for solo piano, Opp.116-119, twenty short, but profound reflections on loss, grief, and a hope, firmly rooted in Christian faith, which survives all the painful turmoil to give meaning to our ending. “Outstanding, he plays Mozart extremely beautifully” Martha Argerich Tutor: Iain Lane, Pianist Florian Mitrea Date & Time: Thursday 14th October. 7.30-9.30pm Price: £12.50 (Includes an interval drink) Venue: Nave, St Albans Cathedral.
