Artist:
I Fagiolini, Robert Hollingworth

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.

Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine

"With flexible forces expanding from just four voices up to a nearly 40-strong instrumental and choral ensemble, I Fagiolini are at their most malleable and multifaceted here in a luxury project that can’t have come cheap. Colour images of all the paintings are lovingly reproduced in the booklet, giving the listener as much of the full experience as possible."
