Please come to The Amati Exhibition on Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th being held at the Langham Hotel in London.


The Amati Exhibition showcases the very best antique and contemporary instruments and bows. Now in its fourth year the exhibition is an invaluable networking event for the stringed instrument community. 


The focus for this year is to reintroduce a more relaxed and informal feel so rather than a host a concert we are delighted to be joined by Trio Isimsiz for Sunday’s drinks reception. They are going to play Dvorak’s piano trio in F minor and the last movement of Schumann’s piano trio in G minor.


On Monday there is an ‘Open Stage’ session where musicians from YCAT (Young Classical Artists Trust) and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama will perform with instruments chosen from the exhibitor’s tables.


Our instrument highlight this year is a cello by Giovanni Grancino, Milan, 1696, generously loaned from a private collection courtesy of J & A Beare. The cello has survived in a remarkably pure state with unpolished naturally worn varnish.


Entrance on both days is free. For more information please contact Charlott on +44 (0)20 7099 7114 or visit the exhibition page on our website.

Oh to be in London for the week-end. I had hoped to be there this year but, alas, work has kept me away. What a fabulous week-end with the Amati Exhibition and Sale and then Bromptons on the  24th and Ingles and Hayday on the 25th. It doesn't get much better than that!

The Amati Exhibition has become one of the highlights of the year. 

If you have even the remotest interest in violins and can get to London ... be there or be square!


 Martin, I am not in Europe, so I had to ask you: what other exhibits in Europe would you recommend? Any info on Klanggestalten or West Cork? I am really curious about ones besides Mondo Musica.
