He painted the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, observed nature with scientific understanding and helped mankind with his visionary ideas to advance towards a number of innovative technologies. Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most important polymaths of all time – and a man who lived at a time of tremendous upheaval. That is apparent from the music that surrounded him: on 39 tracks the double album The Da Vinci Sound captures the sound of the Renaissance – with masses and motets, with songs, dances and madrigals.
