Five hundred years ago, Leonardo da Vinci died in France at the Château of Clos Lucé, where he had been working on projects for the King of France. For this year’s Music Festival, Clos Lucé has asked the Catalan conductor and master of historical music, Jordi Savall, to create a program inspired by Leonardo. Savall leads musicians from Le Concert des Nations. —L.J.
