Whether due to the invention of printing or to the way in which man saw the world around him, the Renaissance was characterized by tremendous intellectual and cultural ferment. Music too was affected, including the development of the organ. A program inspired by the riches of this period, including a multidisciplinary premiere by Tod Machover based on the essays of Montaigne.
