Alice Springs violinist Dian Booth has a special gift for sensing sound in visual art and takes her instrument into galleries to create “spontaneous compositions” in response to pictures.
In this programme, she recalls how she was first inspired by Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and talks about some of the paintings and sculptures she has “played”.
