The sound of Stradivari

Performances on historical Stradivari violins

At the Museo del Violino it’s possible to listen, live, the sound of these masterpieces assigned to skilled solo players in order to offer to visitors moments of intense and unforgettable poetry.

Only at this Museum, it’s possible to listen to the magnificent instruments of Stradivari, Amati, and Guarneri assigned to skilled solo players to offer moments of intense and unforgettable poetry. The Auditorium inside the Museum is the natural stage for these masterpieces, a place where the architecture tries to “capture” the sound in order to transform it into a picture; the music, ephemeral for its nature, take shape and substance: ephemeral and permanent in a timeless dialogue in the place of the celebration of the violin making tradition of Cremona.

Performance’s ticket cost €7, whereas for schoolchildren is granted a reduced price ticket of €5.
In case of a group of more than 50 spectators, it’s possible to agree on another date.
It’s possible to book at the ticket office of the Museum (0372 080809), whereas the groups could apply to marketing@museodelviolino.org
