Personal Interests
My passion is historical string instruments – violins, violas and violoncellos – old Italian violin makers such as Antonio Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù, Guadagnini from the 17th and 18th centuries, the promotion of suitable young artists with these unique instruments and thus preserve these cultural and historical treasures for our concert halls.
