Perhaps more than any other figure, artist, architect, and engineer Leonardo da Vinci epitomized what it meant to be a Renaissance man. Well known are da Vinci’s paintings Mona Lisa and Last Supper. Lesser known are his dozens of secret notebooks, filled with theories, observations, and inventions: the bicycle, the helicopter, and—hundreds of years before it was invented—the design of an airplane based on the biology of a bat. It’s those private notebooks that are explored and brought to life using the artist’s own words and drawings in Brushstrokes: The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, a regional premiere. Composed by Jocelyn Hagen and performed by the Saint Louis Women’s Chorale and Saint Louis Philharmonic Orchestra, the 90 minute concert will include the latest video-synching technology, allowing the audience a window into the artist-inventor’s world, his imagination, his ingenuity, and his brilliance that was centuries ahead of its time.
