Virtuoso Vadim Repin plays seven Stradivari and Guarneri violins, collectively worth many millions. The violins will be shown at a Christie’s landmark exhibition in Shanghai and Hong Kong of instruments for private sale.
‘The Art of Music’ exhibition traces the history of violin making through the 17th and early 18th centuries, contextualising Stradivari and Guarneri’s work in the broader cultural and artistic developments of the time.
Drawn from a single important European collection, The Art of Music represents the most significant opportunity in a lifetime to view and to acquire some of the greatest violins and cellos still in private hand, dating from the 1670s to the 1730s; the Golden Age of Italian making.
