Another exciting and innovative concert-play from Clare Norburn to follow the successes at previous festivals of Breaking the Rules and Burying the Dead. As a scientist and philosopher, Galileo was the odd-one-out in a family of musicians. In this  exploration of his ideas, music by Monteverdi, Kapsberger and Galileo’s own father and brother acts as a trigger to memory,  transporting us back to his lectures and early experiments, and recalling matters of family, cosmology, and ultimately his  betrayal and trial for heresy.
