Enjoy a summer evening of music inspired by the personal taste of innovative French landscape painter Théodore Rousseau (1812-1867), a true mélomane, or music lover. Videos of a conversation between conductor Nicholas McGegan and Getty paintings curator Scott Allan will be screened at the concert in between pieces by Mozart and Schumann, providing insight into Rousseau’s relationship with the music that fired the passions of his Romantic generation. The exhibition Unruly Nature: The Landscapes of Théodore Rousseau opens at the Getty Center on June 21, 2016.
