Museum Front Yard

Bodyphones is an immersive installation by Aaron Taylor Kuffner, an American-born conceptual artist based in New York.

Five Giants of Romantic Music

The museum is welcoming back the dynamic presenter, Dr. Rachel Franklin. Her course takes a unique look not only at the music of these five great composers – Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt, and Wagner – but also at the fascinating way in which their paths intertwined, both socially and artistically. All were born within five years of one another, between the years 1809-1813.
