Lecture: Music in the Sphere of the Surrealists

While André Breton had a distrust of music, the ideas of Surrealism resonated with a number of European composers who transformed the way music was understood in the modern world. Join Florida Orchestra Music Director Michael Francis and Dalí Museum Curator of Education Peter Tush as they discuss key ideas of Dada and Surrealism in conjunction with the lives and work of some of the most fascinating composers of the 20th century, including Erik Satie, Edgard Varèse, George Antheil, and the composers of Les Six.

If someday I may die, though it is unlikely, I hope the people in the cafés will say, ‘Dalí has died, but not entirely.’ – Salvador Dalí
