Corymbus is a not-for-profit blog with the aim of encouraging public engagement with classical music and the wider arts.

I first came across the word ‘Corymbus’ in a title of the first movement of the the piano concerto by Edmund Rubbra. The term has roots in Greek mythology and has a botanical meaning, for a cluster of berries or flowers. I chose it because it reflects not only my interest in composers like Rubbra, but in looking at the connections between music, nature, and the wider humanities.
