Hey guys today I want to tell you about a great app called @informusic ! It’s a music history resource for smartphones and tablets and if you download it today you can get it for only $0.99!
I was really impressed with this app as it includes not only the biographies of the composers but a timeline that highlights musical events with other disciplines such as art, literature, politics, technology and etc… if you click on this link:
The Trio, Tokyo, Japan (c.1898-1901). Lilla Cabot Perry (American, 1848-1933). Oil on canvas. Fogg Museum of Art.
In 1897 Perry’s husband received a teaching position in Japan, as an English professor at the Keiogijku University. Lilla Perry met Okakura Kakuzō, one of the Imperial Art School co-founders. Perry’s involvement with the Asian art world greatly influenced her work and made it possible for her to develop a unique style that brought together western and eastern aesthetic traditions.
