A musical and visual journey through the loves, affairs and other personal factors that may have influenced the artists and composers of the time, with particular reference to the truth behind the notorious and passionate affair that occurred in summer 1908 between the young Expressionist painter, Richard Gerstl, and the much older Mathilde Schönberg, wife of the composer Arnold Schönberg, an event that not only resulted in Gerstl's painful suicide a few weeks later, but has prompted considerable, often controversial, musicological speculation as to how it came to be represented in the music of the time.

Speaker: Raymond Coffer (London)
