Leonardo: Music and Maths
Leonardo da Vinci and his contemporaries considered music to be a mirror in which mathematical concepts could be applied and proven; polyphony in particular was a field for experimentation where research brought tangible results. Leonardo’s designs for musical instruments – a combination of studied scientific improvements and impossible dreams – still exercise a fascination over us today, even if they occupied only a fraction of his sketchbooks. He certainly knew how to sing and play an instrument himself, while his professional life brought him into close contact with some of the greatest composers of his day.
‘The whole group works like a perfectly-oiled machine, where everyone knows exactly what to do, changing improvisational style from piece to piece with an expertise that left the public astounded and delighted.’ Messaggero Veneto
