Summary:
In the construction of a private princely identity before the eyes of a select public in the study rooms of Italian Renaissance rulers, ideals of sober recreation met with leisured reality. 'Echoing Helicon' reconstructs, through the interpretation of painted and intarsia decoration, the roles played by music in such settings.
