Robert Marcel Lepage, clarinettist, pays tribute to scientists, to today’s musicians and to this Renaissance man, little-known as a musician, Leonardo Da Vinci. Inspired by the personal history of this ingenious artist/inventor, Lepage has composed a remarkably eloquent music: a hydro-mechanic alliance of accurate writing, improvised music and sound machine.

Musicians Michel F Côté, Jean Derome, Bernard Gagnon, Mario Légaré and René Lussier back him on this record. Adieu Leonardo! is the second Robert Marcel Lepage record project, following the previous La traversée de la mémoire morte (AM 011), released in 1987. Far from being an adieu, Adieu Leonardo! is a long-awaited follow-up, a true renaissance!
