David and David

    Playing Pictures


An evening of music and pictures, where David Strong and David Carlton Smith take the audience on a journey through music and art from the romantic period to the present day.

The 2 artists draw parallels between the worlds of music and painting , and try to show the connection of expression in selected pieces and paintings. Though very different mediums the two art forms often express the same basic feeling or impression and by comparing the two the listener is given a new way of looking at pictures and listening to music. Works by Schumann and Casper David Friedrich, Liszt and Turner, Satie and Rousseau, Messiaen and Rothko have more in common than you might at first think!

Playing Pictures is an entertaining evening for all those interested in art and music, delivered with insight and enthusiasm by David Strong and the Yorkshire born artist and lecturer David Carlton Smith.
