On Stage at Wigmore Hall

The instruments at Wigmore Hall Autumn 2018

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, Guarneri, Montagnana and the rare Venetian maker Anselmo Bellosio, including: the ‘Marquis de Corberon’ Stradivari cello with an accompanying interview with Steven Isserlis,

who explains why it suits him so well; the 1706 ‘Dragonetti’ Stradivari, named after a Venetian bass player and today played by German violinist Veronika Eberle; and Norwegian soloist Truls Mørk’s Domenico Montagnana cello dated 1723.

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.
