LEONARDO

SHAPING THE INVISIBLE  

​

I Fagiolini with Leonardo expert Professor Martin Kemp

 

Images reflected in music

​

Painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, pioneer of flight, anatomist, scientist - yet according to Vasari, Leonardo’s first job outside Florence was as a musician.

​

“Music cannot be regarded other than as the sister of painting", said Leonardo, so for the 500th anniversary of his death in 2019, I Fagiolini and Martin Kemp offer reflections of his images in vocal music: aural fantasia dei vinci - art through the prism of music, in works by Tallis, Victoria, Monteverdi, Bach, Howells and Daniel-Lesur.

​

The title track ‘Shaping the invisible’ (Leonardo’s phrase) is a new commission by Adrian Williams and poet Gillian Clarke for eight voices, celebrating Leonardo’s scientific investigation and obsession with flight.
