Personal Summary / Bio
Heralded as "a musical tour-de-force" at the Spoleto Music Festival, Galileo's Daughters have been bringing their unique combination of musical scholarship, drama, opera and jazz backgrounds to the early music scene since their formation in 2001, offering a musical experience from the past that comes to life through word and song. In the program 'Perpetual Motion', Dava Sobel, author of Galileo's Daughter,Longitude and The Planets, narrates this intriguing tale of coinciding discoveries in science and music at the dawning of the early modern era that continue to be relevant to our world today. The early music ensemble Galileo's Daughters, with guest lutenist Ronn McFarlane (as Vincenzo Galilei) create a visceral link to the past. Accompanying the performance is a high-definition film of images from space and nature, bringing to light the simple beauty of our world.
