Minneapolis composer Jocelyn Hagen was inspired by the drawing and writing of Leonardo da Vinci to create her new choral/orchestral work, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, commissioned and being given its world premiere by the Minnesota Chorale and the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Kathy Romey and William Schrickel. The seven-movement work features projections of Leonardo’s words and illustrations created by Ion Concert Media that are coordinated with the live performance. Ottorino Respighi’s gorgeous Botticelli Triptych, the composer’s musical evocations of three paintings created over 500 years ago by the Florentine master Sandro Botticelli, opens the concert.
Concerts are free; donations are requested. Grace members Linnea Swenson Tellekson and Mike Engh are part of the MSO!
