The Glory of Venice - 500 Years of Music and The Arts

30 Te Mata Road, Havelock North

Peter Medhurst, a musician and scholar, gives recitals and gives illustrated talks on music and the arts. Peter studied at the Royal College of Music in London and the Mozarteum in Salzburg. Peter has recorded his own music and presents on Classic FM, Radio 3 and Radio 4 in the UK. This talk will illustrate how the “glory of Venice” was also the beginning of Venice’s decline. Peter illustrates how Venice’s passion for survival resulted in many magnificent contributions to Western culture.
