ROGER ASKEW

‘FROM PAGEANT TO POP’ – THE HISTORY OF MUSIC IN LONDON

With its six world-class orchestras, two opera houses and abundant venues and events, and a major centre of popular music, London can be called the musical capital of the world.  This lecture explores how the city developed its wonderful traditions of public music from the 16th century to the present day; from royal court and coffee house to concert hall and rock stage.  This story involves many colourful individuals, Purcell, Handel and Elgar among them, who have left their mark on the musical life of the city.  This lecture, richly illustrated with musical examples, also explores how many of our national institutions are inextricably linked to some of the greatest music.

Non-members welcome at £10 per person.
