Music with Michael: Leonardo Da Vinci

‘His lifelong obsessions for staging theatrical productions informed his paintings and inventions…. He peeled the flesh off of the faces of cadavers, drew the muscles that move the lips and then painted the most memorable smile…’

Based on Walter Issacson’s magnificent biography Leonardo, Michael Lankester traces the life and times of one of the most remarkable artists who ever lived. Woven throughout with music of the High Renaissance and subsequest centuries, this series of talks looks in detail at Leonardo Da Vinci the painter, sculptor, scientist, mathematician, inventor and polymath.
