A friend recommended this to me so as I was in London a couple of weeks ago I decided to make the effort to go and see it, especially as it was due to finish in a couple of days (it is finished now by the way).
Well, I’m glad that I did make the effort. It was very good indeed and was in fact quite thought provoking, especially in the area of how music had a very specific social and cultural dimension to it. It made me think about how we use music socially (which of course in itself means something different) and culturally now, which is quite an interesting topic to ponder on.
I’m not sure I have any answers or even conclusions, but the Vermeer and Music was worth seeing.
