Music in the Great Art Collections of Europe

Peter Medhurst appears in the UK and abroad as musician and scholar, giving recitals and delivering illustrated lectures on music and the arts. He studied singing and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.Many of the great – but smaller – European art collections are tucked away in side streets, country houses and provincial towns, known often only to connoisseurs and local communities.  With an eye to important paintings, musical instruments and pictures with musical content, Peter Medhurst explores some of these quality galleries
