Literary Lunchtimes – Shakespeare and Music with Samantha Lin (QUB)

Shakespeare and Music with Samantha Lin

Date: 13 Apr 2016
Time: 1pm
Venue: Ulster Hall

William Shakespeare once described music as the `food of love.` This Literary Lunchtime discusses several Shakespearean passages about music and explores how composers have, in turn, responded to Shakespeare`s plays. Musicians from the Ulster Orchestra perform the Adagio from Beethoven`s 1st String Quartet, inspired by the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet.

Samantha Lin is a final-year PhD student at Queen`s University where she is researching the role of the soundtrack in Shakespearean movie adaptations.
