To complement the “Armchair Travel” film Leonardo: The Works, the Museum presents a gallery concert featuring music by Duo Dramatique on violin and piano.

Leonardo: The Works screens at 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 25, in Brown Auditorium Theater. Afterward, head over to the Beck Building for this gallery concert: “The Art of Proportion and Emotion: Leonardo’s Ideas in Music” at 4:15 p.m.

Duo Dramatique offers up selections that illustrate the concepts of Leonardo da Vinci’s art, exploring the ideas of revival and rebirth—staples of the Renaissance. The performers also discuss the architectural approach to music, and the element of human emotion seen in Leonardo’s most famous works.
