Stradivari Tyrrell 1717 violin on show

From Saturday 28 January to Sunday 5 February, the collections of the Violin Museum in Cremona will be enriched by a new, extraordinary masterpiece. Indeed, it will be possible to admire and listen to Antonio Stradivari’s Tyrrell 1717 violin. The excellent construction qualities and the excellent state of conservation led the Hills, well-known lutherie experts, to define the instrument, now belonging to a private collection and exhibited thanks to J&A Beare and in collaboration with the J&A Beare Scientific Research Department, “one of the best examples of the Master’s work”. It is no coincidence that it has been placed side by side with the famous Le Messie several times, highlighting traits of affinity in numerous construction details as well as in the evident and widespread presence of the original paint.
