About The Event

As a companion program to Rembrandt in America (February 19-May 28, 2012), the first major exhibition to explore in depth the collecting history of Rembrandt paintings in the United States, CMA curator Jon Seydl sits down with keyboard specialist Peter Bennett to discuss music and art surrounding the life of Rembrandt van Rijn (Dutch, 1606-1669). Performances of short works for harpsichord are interspersed with free-flowing conversation for an illuminating evening of intersections and insights.

Free, no ticket required. Limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis
