    This is a wonderful commission from Johnny Reinhard for the American Festival of Microtonal Music. It features tunings for guitar and prepared effects for bassoon. David Eggar added cello effects to complete the ensemble. Leonardo Dreams went on to be a multimedia ballet receiving grants from both the Juilliard School and the School of Visual Arts. Laura Glenn was choreographer for that ballet and Albert Yu was the videographer and computer artist.

    The actual score reflects the jazz lead sheet which acts as a guide for improvisation. The three musicians used the written score as a starting point for their own performances. The score contained the content for them to work with and the performance inspired them to make choices on the fly in real time a jazz technique. This particular performance lays down the aesthetic for Leonardo to be performed else where. It is the bench mark performance for other musicians to refer to.
