Leonardo da Vinci in 1480s invented a musical instrument called Viola Organista. However he never built it. For 500 years very few attempts were made to bring this project to life, moreover none of them fully succeeded. Until now. In 2013, after 4-years-long work, Sławomir Zubrzycki, Polish pianist and constructor, built the first concert Viola Organista and started a new chapter of its history. Now with your help we would like to release CD album and preserve this music.
Viola Organista is a unique instrument built specifically for concert, but the possibilities of organizing concerts are limited by time and distance. The only other way to appreciate and fully preserve the heritage that this instrument brings is releasing CD.
We wish to make the first Viola Organista album perfect in every detail. Our aim is to create a little masterpiece, pleasing not only to ears, but also to the eye. With Leonardo as the inventor, we feel obliged.
Your support will allow us to complete this project as soon as this AUTUMN.
