Hearing Enchantment: Music through Theosophy

06/05/2014, 7:00 pm

Fry Street Quartet

  • John Foulds Aquarelles (Music-Pictures Group II), op. 32
  • Cyril Scott String Quartetno. 2 (1958) 
  • Beethoven String Quartet in Fop. 59 no. 1 

The Fry Street Quartet will perform a concert that explores the connections between music and Theosophy as part of the Leverhulme-funded network Enchanted Modernities: Theosophy and the Arts, 1875-1960.

This will include rarely-heard works from the twentieth-century British composers Cyril Scott and John Foulds.

Scott found inspiration in the writings of Theosophical Society founder Helena Blavatsky, and Foulds worked for a time on behalf of the Society as director of music at the London headquarters.

The concert will close with the music of Beethoven, a favourite musical topic in Theosophical journals and one of the composers often celebrated by Theosophists.


Free entry. All welcome.
