TIDBIT: LEONARDO DAVINCI’S VIOLA ORGANISTA FINALLY BUILT AND ...

November 19, 2013 By Joseph P. Farrell

have to share this, both because I love classical music, keyboard instruments, and Leonardo DaVinci, who invented a keyboard instrument called the viola organista, which bows its strings. Well, someone in Poland finally built one(the first in history), and debuted it at Krakow's music conservatory, and best of all, a nice performance of Boccherini's Minuet in G at the end of the performance. A bit of engineering craft and beauty and some lovely music:
