Listening to Art, by William Denton.
Volume seven, number eight: Large Two Forms by Henry Moore.
Hello, and welcome to Listening to Art. I’m William Denton.
We have heard this work twice before. In volume one number ten we heard it at at its former location at the corner of Dundas and McCaul, at the northeast corner of the Art Gallery of Ontario, in Toronto. In volume one number eleven we heard it at its new location, in a recording made in September 2017. Now we can compare that with a recording made almost three years later.
This is a sculpture, cast in bronze, fitting in a volume approximately 475 cm wide, 335 cm high and 475 cm deep.
Now let’s listen to Large Two Forms by Henry Moore, recorded in Grange Park, south of the Art Gallery of Ontario, in Toronto, on 12 July 2020.
That was Large Two Forms by Henry Moore. I hope you enjoyed listening to it as much as I did.
