In this series, conductor and music historian Leon Botstein explores the parallels between orchestral music and the visual arts. Each concert opens with a talk accompanied by musical excerpts performed by The Orchestra Now with on-screen artworks, followed by a full performance and audience Q&A. Honegger, Vallotton, and the Avant-Garde in Paris Composer Arthur Honegger and painter Félix Vallotton were both Swiss nationals who spent the larger part of their careers in Paris, where they became part of the avant-garde scene in music (Les Six) and art (Les Nabis). Both explored the intersection between tradition and modernism and Honegger's first symphony mirrors the magnetism of Paris in the 1920s. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Félix Vallotton: Painter of Disquiet.
