Embracing the ideals of the French Revolution, yet despising the tyranny of the new Emperor Napoleon, Francisco Goya y Luçientes was a man of contrast and conflict. Braggart, court painter, war journalist, and political, as well as religious but a satirist, he lived much of his life in the shadow of the Inquisition, yet he enjoyed the patronage of a conservative Catholic king.
In his paintings he depicted all aspects of late 18th and early 19th century Spanish life: the leisure class enjoying a day on the banks of the Rio Manzañeras, a traditional bullfight, a tavern brawl, common people dancing a bolero or fandango, poverty, military might, royal majesty (albeit sometimes as a parody) and, most deliberately, the horrors of war.
The turbulent environment of Spanish artist Francisco Goya takes center stage in a multi-media program featuring lively instrumental and vocal works by Francisco Courcelle, Fernando Sor, Vicente Garviso, plus one of Luigi Boccherini’s beloved guitar quintets, all accompanied by projections of Goya’s artwork. “Goya’s World: Reflexión y Revolución” is curated and guest directed by Ars Lyrica guitarist and lutenist Richard Savino.

Rex Orange County in Concert
@Revention Music Center
On the heels of releasing his new song "10/10" in the summer of 2019, Rex Orange County announced his newest album, Pony- the highly-anticipated follow up to 2017's Apricot Princess. The album was written, recorded, and performed almost entirely by Rex himself at Strongroom Studios in East London with frequent collaborator Ben Baptie co-producing, engineering and mixing the album. Pony includes "10/10", which Rolling Stone called "triumphant" and a "song you need to know" and was described by NPR as "a sincere, sad-boy gem." The album follows standout performances at a handful of major festivals in 2019, including UK's Glastonbury (where he first debuted "10/10"), Paris' We Love Green, Berlin's Lollapalooza, and Australia's Laneway Festival.
Rex Orange County back in November spoke to NPR's Zoe Jones, "The songs themselves sound kind of confused and naïve, as they are. I feel like the lyrics are the same. I could explain anything and go, "I'm f*****," you know, swearing and being like, "I'm sad." That was just part of this style of, like, emotion — I was meant to just be throwing emotional things. I'd like to think I'm slightly better at writing lyrics and being like, this is the story before I say that word. And then I say that word and then I can't really explain why. I'm glad you picked up on that; I'd like to think that I'm better at that.
I've been incredibly unhealthy mentally, I feel, for that entire time of making it [Pony], and to this day I still feel like I'm a different person. But I'm happier now, I've definitely overcome maybe the worst parts of that. I also think the release of the music and the idea of being finished with the album was probably the most satisfying thing.
That's what I feel good about now, is that I actually was able to get all of that off my chest and just say, you know, there's a lot of things I still want to figure out and be and be happier and be less kind of anxious, feel less depressed. But I think everyone's got that at the moment in some shape or form."
