In 1502, Leonardo da Vinci drafted the plans for what would have been the largest bridge in Istanbul, overlooking the Golden Horn and thus connecting East and West. This concert gives musical expression to an architectural project which, unfortunately, never saw the light of day. Drawn from 16th- and 17th- century manuscripts from Constantinople and Venice, these works transport audiences to the imaginary and adventurous world of Leonardo da Vinci, 500 years after his death.
