I Fagiolini

Details

The ever-inventive and imaginative I Fagiolini returns to LDSM with its latest bold project. 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, the greatest polymath the world has ever seen. Alongside his art, science and inventions, Leonardo wrote about music (his first job away from Florence was probably as a musician), and he described music as 'shaping the invisible'.

Presented by its director Robert Hollingworth and leading da Vinci authority Martin Kemp, this evening delves into Leongardo's mind, discussing his life's work with illustrations of his iconic art and inventions illuminated through the lens of vocal music of the period. The event culminates in a newly-commissioned work by composer Adrian Williams and poet Gillian Clarke on the theme of Leonardo and scientific endeavour.
