Event: Music Between Nature and Architecture

What: Stanford Presidential and Endowed Lecture, Leon Botstein, President of Bard College, on music’s connection to nature and architecture.

When: Tuesday, April 26th, 6:00pm

Where: Cubberly Auditorium (Free and open to the public)

Description: Since at least the early 19th century, how we hear and understand music has been linked to our views of nature and the built environment. Join us as President Botstein charts these parallel developments. He will explore the work of composers — among them Mendelssohn, Mahler, Sibelius, and Stravinsky — and compare their music to the work of the architects Schinkel, Wright, Saarinen, and Le Corbusier
