In the late 15th century, the Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino wrote that music was “nothing but a decoration of silence”, and music could bring on a “divine frenzy”. The Italian lutenist Francesco da Milano, known as “il divino”, was said to have sent his audiences into a trance and rob them of all their senses, save one, that of hearing. Set in the 17th-century library of the House of the Redeemer, this recital by one of the world's leading lutenists transports the 21st century listener into a historical world of sensual delight.
