Leonardo da Vinci instrument visits Stockholm – world sensation!
An exclusive world sensation that mustn´t be missed – only at Stockholm Early Music Festival! The instrument Viola organista, one of its kind, was invented and designed by Leonardo da Vinci in 1489 and has now, after 500 years of waiting, been built by the Polish musician Sławomir Zubrzycki. Its first foreign trip goes to Sweden, when the biggest festival for Early Music in the Nordic countries on Sunday 8 June in the House of Nobility presents it to the public with three unique concerts at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm. Zubrzycki will not only tell the audience about the instrument´s background but also among others play Orlando di Lasso, Marin Marais and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
4-8 June 2014, for the 13th consecutive year, Stockholm Early Music Festival presents about twenty international concerts - the season´s climax for the Early Music Lover. For the first time even the Swedish Arts Council has highlighted SEMF as an "event of national interest". So once again it is time to enjoy the awaited bright early summer days which in the historical parts of the Old town in Stockholm are filled with live music.
