Amaryllis Fleming Cello

A new masterpiece at the Violin's Museum

We can not forget the history and the beauty of our music instruments. For this reason, the Violin's Museukm in Cremona has been working to safeguard and enhance this delicate and very important heritage. A long-lasting and detailed analysis in favour of the entire international community, of the experts and of the music lovers who can always count on new proposals and opportunities organized by the Violin 's Museum.  

On the 5th of September, the collections of the Violin's Museum will welcome a new masterpiece. It will be exhibited, in fact, the 5-string Amaryllis Fleming cello, made by Girolamo Amati in the 17th Century. This instrument belongs, as it is demonstrated by its name, to Amaryllis Fleming, a famous English musician and teacher who was the step-sister of the author of James Bond's stories.

In the 50s of the last century, Ms. Fleming started to study the baroque music: she used to play the Suite n.6 by Bach with this cello. You will have the opportunity to listen to it on the 10th of October, at 12 p.m., at Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi, when it will be played by the Dutch soloist Jobine Siekman.

This instrument is typical of Amati who made it using an excellent material. The varnish is still perfect. After the death of Ms. Fleming in 1999, the cello became property of the Foundation which was founded with her name.  

The violin will be on display at the Violin's Museum till the next Spring.
