Classical music has long been influenced by—and been an influence on—other art forms. From operas based on myths and works of literature, to films using classical music in their soundtracks, we’ll discuss how classical music interacts with different types of art and culture at large, and how music can be a driver of culture as well as an important repository of socio-cultural meaning.
