On Stage at Wigmore Hall

The instruments at Wigmore Hall Spring 2019

Spotlighting the historic instruments played at the Wigmore Hall

On Stage at Wigmore Hall is a series by Tarisio in partnership with the Wigmore Hall in London.

Tarisio’s founder and expert Jason Price explores the iconic violins, violas and cellos heard each season, bringing their makers, characteristics and history to life through unique content and leading expertise.

This season will focus on Janine Jansen’s 1707 ‘Baron Gutmann’ Stradivari, Tasmin Little’s 1757 G.B. Guadagnini and a violin by the

rare Venetian maker Anselmo Bellosio played by Alina Ibragimova, who talks to us about why the violin suits her so well.

Published in the Wigmore Hall concert programmes, Jason’s commentaries will appear alongside the artist’s biography. Here they are collated into a digital exhibition with additional images, provenance, interviews with musicians and links to the instruments in the Cozio archive.

Jason Price discusses why foundations such as Norway’s Dextra Musica, owner of the ‘Rivaz, Baron Gutmann’ Stradivari, are so important for musicians today.
