Music and Painting from The Italian Renaissance

Each musical item in this program has been chosen to align with a specific painting from the National Gallery of Australia’s Renaissance Exhibition. During the performance, the corresponding images will be projected. So after you have heard the serene, graceful polyphony of Dufay’s “O Beate Sebastiane” while viewing Raphael’s dreamily beautiful “Saint Sebastian,” will you ever be able to see Raphael’s painting without hearing Dufay’s motet, or hear Dufay’s motet  without remembering Raphael’s painting again?

Saturday 24th March at 7pm

James O. Fairfax Theatre, National Gallery of Australia

Parkes Place, Parkes, Canberra
