How do you describe a Mozart sonata in words so the notes sing and dance on the page as vividly as if you were hearing them? And how does the work of a painter, sculptor or visual artist influence the work of a writer? Masters of each form have influenced each of our guests – join Ann Cotten, Stefan Hertmans, Martí Sales, and Krisztina Tóth as they discuss these influences and reflect on the ways in which music and art have shaped and influenced their own work. Moderated by author and publisher of Open Letter Books at the University of Rochester, Chad W. Post.
