The Featherstonehaughs Draw on the Sketchbooks of Egon Schiele, The Place, London

Egon Schiele's drawings can be unnerving. The Austrian expressionist's delicate lines give his subjects a spindly, neurotic energy.

Great Works: Running Man (circa 1932), Kasimir Malevich

Musee National d'Art Moderne, Paris

The Truth About Love, Royal Opera House, London

Four talented Jette Parker Young Artists, three song cycles, one very familiar canvas – life, love, loss. The devisor and director of this somewhat overcooked confection, Jose Dario Innella, subtitled it “Dramatic ruminations over Schumann, Britten, and Ebel song cycles” and therein lay the problem: too much rumination. Directed to within an inch of its life, the title – The Truth About Love - is drawn from the most familiar of Britten’s Cabaret Songs whose stanzas are scattered like discarded one-liners throughout the evening.

Schoenberg Gurrelieder, Philharmonia Orchestra/ Salonen, Royal Festival Hall
