Spotlighting the historic instruments played at the Wigmore Hall
On Stage at Wigmore Hall is a new series by Tarisio in partnership with the Wigmore Hall in London.
Tarisio’s Founder and Expert Jason Price will explore the violins, violas and cellos heard this season, bringing their makers, characteristics and history to life through unique content and leading expertise.
This season will focus on instruments by Stradivari, G.B. Guadagnini, Goffriller, Pressenda and Cappa, including: Jean-Guihen Queyras’s Gioffredo Cappa cello and why it’s
a myth that the Turin maker was taught by Amati; Joshua Bell’s ‘Gibson, Huberman’ Stradivari violin and the story of its theft and recovery; Steven Isserlis’s ‘Marquis de Corberon’ Stradivari cello; and Gautier Capuçon’s Goffriller cello.
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.
