with Juliette de Marcellus
Enjoy talks on the coming of the Romantic Period to the world of music based on the life and works of the four great pianist composers, Chopin, Liszt, Mendelssohn and Schumann. These four young men, friends and colleagues, all born within 18 months of each other, spearheaded the music of the century, developed the piano as the supreme instrument of the period and composed music as fresh and innovative today as it was in their time.
Juliette de Marcellus is a pianist, prize-winning music critic and lecturer. She studied at the Guildhall School of Music in London and with professor Leonie Gom- brich at Oxford. She has written a narrative version of Prokofiev’s “Lieutenant Kije Suite” for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
