Some seek refuge in imagining music in pictures and treat its notes like words or visual images. But this will not do for abstract musical designs. For these we need a more sophisticated understanding of how notes and structures are selected and used, and how they convey meaning and emotion to listeners. This talk will explore these ideas in relation to two great abstract designs, Mozart E flat Quartet K428 and Bartók's mighty 4th String Quartet in "C". Conway Hall, London DD/MM/YYYY
