London Wetland Centre is hosting the Musical Flights of Fancy - Guitar Recital with Marc-Jean Bernard

Under the title Musical Flights of Fancy, this guitar recital invites you on a journey of exploration of the multiple facets of Leonardo da Vinci’s inventive genius, reaching across art, science and music. No place could better reflect Leonardo’s love of nature than the Wetland Centre. For Leonardo, birds were not only the charming and legendary creatures of nature. They were the real-world model for his flying machines and the spiritual 'symbol of his destiny’. The theme of Birds will be reflected in an eclectic programme (with music by DaVinci, Byrd, Bach, Rodrigo, Debussy) which has the Fantasy as its golden thread.

Marc Jean-Bernard is a classical guitarist, conductor and academic. He lives in Puerto Rico where he teaches philosophy.
