The Art Connection

  

Danish composer Carl Nielsen’s second symphony was inspired by a painting he saw while enjoying a glass of beer in a country inn.

The death of a promising Russian artist prompted composer Modest Mussorgsky to write what has become his best-loved work.

And an 18th century French painter’s depictions of aristocratic passion prompted two very different 20th century responses by Debussy and Poulenc.

In this hour, these and other links between canvas and concert hall.
