Leonardo Da Vinci finally gets his Viola Organista built after 500 years !
I always thought the harpsicord sounded a bit thin…not anymore. I think Leonardo would be pleased.
The viola organista has finally been created, thanks to a Polish concert pianist with a flair for instrument-making and the patience and passion to interpret Leonardo’s plans. The effect is a sound that da Vinci dreamt of, but never heard; there are no historical records suggesting he or anyone else of his time built the instrument he designed. A sketch and notes is found in da Vinci’s Codex Atlanticus, a 12-volume collection of his manuscripts and designs for everything from weaponry to flight. ‘‘I have no idea what Leonardo da Vinci might think of the instrument I’ve made, but I’d hope he’d be pleased,’’ said Zubrzycki, who spend three years and 5000 hours bringing da Vinci’s creation to life. It combines the harpsichord, the organ and the viola da gamba and is full of strings and spinning wheels.
