The Royal College of Music.pdf
The Royal College of Music (RCM) is one of the world's great conservatoires, training gifted musicians from around the world for careers as performers, conductors, composers and teachers. Since its foundation in 1882, the RCM has developed an unrivalled collection of manuscripts, instruments, portraits, programmes and archives which are used to support and add breadth to the students' studies. This latest title in the Director's Choice series gives Professor Colin Lawson, Director of the RCM, the opportunity to present his personal selection from the College's treasures, giving an insight into their history and their place in the work of this busy conservatoire. This includes world-famous items like a Mozart manuscript and Thomas Hardy's portrait of Haydn, to less well-known items like opera set designs and Elgar's foray into map design.
Professor Colin Lawson is Director of the Royal College of Music.
