Probably the greatest polymath of all time, Leonardo was also a musician and revered music as the only serious rival for his divine ‘science’ of painting. Marking the 500th anniversary of his death and the legacy of this forward-thinking ‘Renaissance Man’, I Fagiolini combines art, music and science in this project with Leonardo expert Professor Martin Kemp. Inspired by Leonardo’s relentless curiosity, the programme explores some of his best- loved images through the prism of music by Tallis, Howells, Victoria, Bach, Monteverdi, Rubbra, Janequin, Daniel-Lesur and Josquin des Prez. The images will be projected in the Priory Church.
I Fagiolini is renowned for its innovative productions. Under its inspirational director Robert Hollingworth, the group has been applauded in Purbeck for its performances of Monteverdi’s Orfeo and Monteverdi: The Other Vespers. Martin Kemp is Emeritus Professor in the History of Art at Trinity College, Oxford University. He has published numerous books including a prize-winning one on Leonardo da Vinci and has broadcast extensively.
Rehearsal: Those who have bought tickets for the evening performance can sit in on part of the rehearsal in the church from 3.00pm. Please bring your ticket to gain admittance.
