Concert at CSI

Just returned from a lovely concert at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana. I was puzzled by the two winged figures in the picture on the front cover of the programme leaflet, until I realised that they are from Boticelli's painting Birth of Venus, probably chosen because these two figures are blowing air, the concert being one of wind instruments.

The entire leaflet with details of the concert, the director and the musicians is here: http://goo.gl/83EVb
