Galileos DaughtersMusic in the Age of Galileo - Le Nuove Musiche.

Galileo and his composer father, Vincenzo, lived in a time when the "mathematical arts" flourished and gave birth to a new form of song based on the interpretation of ancient Greek theory and declamation. Giulio Caccini's 'Le Nuove Musiche' and virtuosic lute music is at the heart of this program.

Galileo's Daughters combines music, spoken word and the visual arts to create thought-provoking and intriguing programs. Sarah Pillow, voice and Mary Anne Ballard, viola da gamba, along with special guests, present performances that clarify the vibrant relationship between science, the arts, human thought and faith.
