Art and Music of the Renaissance
From the Medieval to the Mannered, Superstitious to the Scientific.
Victoria Martino continues her annual lecture-concert series at the Athenaeum, begun in 2003. Employing her extensive background in art history, literature, and music, Ms. Martino will illuminate the complex interrelationships between the arts of the Renaissance in Europe from 1400 to 1600, placing them within their broader cultural, religious, and political contexts.
In her lecture-concerts, each musical performance by the Musica Pro Arte Ensemble will be juxtaposed with a PowerPoint presentation of art works from the same region and period. Ms. Martino is dedicating this year's series to the treasured memory of her late husband, Konrad Oberhuber, a renowned Renaissance scholar and the world authority on Raphael.
