LEONARDO: Shaping the Invisible

October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Featured in this year’s Hastings Early Music Festival are the internationally renowned vocal ensemble I Fagiolini. Celebrating Leonardo’s 500th anniversary and the legacy of this forward-thinking ‘Renaissance Man’, the solo-voice-consort I Fagiolini, combines art, music and science in a new immersive concert: Leonardo – Shaping the Invisible.

Inspired by Leonardo’s restless curiosity, Shaping the Invisible explores his best-loved images through the prism of music by Tallis, Howells, Victoria, Bach, Monteverdi, Rubbra, Janequin, Daniel-Lesur and Josquin des Prez.
Introduced by Leonardo expert Professor Martin Kemp, the programme matches projections of Da Vinci’s iconic art with vocal masterworks.

‘ a deeply rewarding way to mark the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death.’ The Observer (5 stars)
