Tarisio Trust

The Tarisio Trust was created to cultivate the careers of exceptionally talented artists through the loan of great instruments.

Through the Tarisio Trust, instrument owners and artists are brought together to advance the musicians’ careers and provide the opportunity for the recipients to have access to these important works of art which will then be heard by audiences all over the world.

The administration and oversight of the program, including insurance, instrument maintenance, and support, are provided by Tarisio.

For the instrument owner, the benefits of such patronage are profoundly worthwhile. Not only do fine instruments serve as excellent long-term financial investments, but these historical instruments serve as a tool and need to be played in order to maintain their integrity. By being matched with top performing artists of tremendous talent, patrons experience the joy of owning a historically significant instrument while supporting the artistic and personal growth and success of the musician – a unique and dynamic journey.
