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 Hilary Hahn’s 1865 J.B. Vuillaume (one of her two Vuillaume violins), the 1709 ‘Engleman’ Stradivari violin which is loaned to the young virtuoso Benjamin Beilman,
and the 1750 Pietro Antonio dalla Costa played by Slovenian violinist Lana Trotovsek, while soloist Alexi Kenny talks about the ‘Joachim Ma’ Stradivari of 1714.
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.
