Wood MUSIC - PAINTING - POETRY Expressing beauty through color, rhythm, form and harmony. November 17th I. MUSIC AND PAINTING. Greek Art harmonious, resposeful, balanced and flowing, reflected in the music of Mozart. The Renaissance, with its return to the classic traditions of Greek Art, emphasizing color and decoration, produced Leonardo da Vinci. His beauty of line, delicacy and unusual use of color find their counterpart in the music of Chopin. Expressionistic Art revealing the spirit of experimentation, distortion and intense individualism is shown in the work of Matisse and Picasso. Similar tendencies are also defined in the work of the French and Russian contemporary composers. December 2nd II. MUSIC AND POETRY. The earliest poems of our language complete, with the folksongs, a vivid picture of the age. Shakespeare, "the universal poet," in dramatic effect and epic grandeur, may be linked with Beethoven. The Romantic Age, or age of the great lyric poets, Keats, Byron, Shelly and Wordsworth, suggests, among the Romantic composers, Schubert, Liszt and Chopin. The ideals for which the Imagist poets stand are beautifully defined by Debussy. January 21st III. PROGRAMME. Pastorale..............Scarlatti-Tausig Fantasle in D minor............
