European Paintings and Sculpture Curator Jon Seydl and Cleveland Orchestra Assistant Conductor James Feddeck discuss a few works in our galleries that connect to the chamber music concert series, Italian Masterworks. This collaboration will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to play in the museum’s Gartner Auditorium for the first time. In this five-video series, the two scholars ponder the connections between the painters and composers, the meanings of the works they created, and what these works might tell us about the times in which they lived.
