Exhibition on Screen – Tokyo Stories

A thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals.

Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.

The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself, and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.

A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet…

Worthington Chamber Orchestra – An Evening with Beethoven: Septet in E-flat major, op. 20

Since its premiere in 1800, Ludwig van Beethoven's Septet in E-flat major has held a special place in the chamber music canon. It was written during the second half of the 18th century when the aristocracy and the middle class used serenades and divertimentos as light entertainment at social gatherings. The charming six-movement work was written for four strings and three wind instruments, and due to its popularity, Beethoven arranged the work for other instrumental combinations. It was so popular that, to Beethoven's dismay and displeasure, it overshadowed compositions he held in higher regard. Even today, the work remains, arguably, the finest septet ever written.
