VIDEO: Viola Organista
The viola organista was invented by Leonardo da Vinci, yet it was never actually built. This musicial instrument combines a harpsichord, an organ and a viola da gamba and has a unique rich sound.  

This is the world premier of Leonardo da Vinci's viola organista by Polish concert pianist Sławomir Zubrzycki.


In this video, Mr. Zubrzycki discusses how he constructed the viola organista based on Da Vinci's plans.
