Doc Lamott's Musical Persentation

"Clair de Lune and Water Lilies":
Music and art shared a style period, now known as Impressionism, centered in France in the second half of the nineteenth century. Rarely have the two art forms had so much in common, from the choice of subject matter to their use of visual and tonal colors. Composers and artists in this style were also reacting to the emotion and bombast of previous styles and asserting both their love of nature and fascination with light. Illustrated with artworks by Monet and his contemporaries and the music of Debussy, Dr. Lamott explored the common characteristics of this style, which though controversial in its time, is now one of the most popular in art museums and concert halls.
Dr. Lamott is wonderful at providing amazing history.

The Residents enjoy how he is able to lecture and play excerpts on the piano.

Thank you Dr. Lamott we look forward to your next musical lecture.
