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.

Exhibition on Screen – Pissarro: Father of Impressionism

Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as “the father of Impressionism”.

Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris and, by the age of 43, had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.

Pissarro was a dedicated family man, generous with his advice, passionate about experimentation, well-read, socially aware and an anarchist. It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed and, throughout it all, he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work.

Filmed on location in France, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Kunstmuseum in Basel. With exclusive access to the most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores the enthralling and hugely important biography of an extraordinary artist.
