Celebrating Corot: Women
The Living Art Collective Ensemble (LACE)—formed under the auspices of the National Gallery of Art concert series—creates performances that connect historic art and musical events to modern-day experiences. In Corot’s pictorial creations, music, opera, and theater play a role almost as important as nature. LACE brings the world of music into Corot’s unique realm, highlighting the women who inspired not only his work, but whose contributions to the world of music and art are immeasurable. The program features music by Louise Farrenc, Clara Schumann, and Pauline Viardot.
