Listening to pictures- art and music in the early renaissance

The Orlando Consort is delighted to present a visual and aural feast featuring some of the greatest painters and composers of the Renaissance. This multimedia production vividly reveals how Renaissance art is full of sound – angels sing out from altarpieces, ancient gods and goddesses compete in musical contests, and music provides an essential backdrop to sensuous, amorous encounters.

A professionally created visual sequence brings the viewer close to stunning works of art, offering a privileged view that re-creates the experience of encountering them in their original historic Italian setting. Full images dissolve into spectacular close-ups, all to the accompaniment of glorious music from the same era and chosen by the Consort for the specific connections to the paintings on view.
