The Wallace Collection welcomes our new Director and Spanish painting specialist Dr Xavier Bray with a special evening concert, ‘Through Gilded Trellises': a Celebration of Spain, featuring acclaimed tenor Luis Gomes.


Inspired by the Collection’s impressive assemblage of Spanish Old Master paintings, the concert will highlight music by Turina, Mompou and Granados in addition to Spanish-inspired music by celebrated European composers such as Debussy and Scarlatti.

The intimate concert will be held in the Collection’s Great Gallery, surrounded by some of art history’s most recognizable Old Master paintings, including Velázquez’ The Lady with a Fan and Rubens’ The Rainbow Landscape.


The evening will also feature an ‘in conversation’ discussion between Dr Bray and pianist Iain Burnside, where they will consider the wider impact of Spanish painters and composers on European culture.
