André Rieu Lends Out His Violin

André Rieu Lends Out His Violin
L1 News: On March 18, André Rieu lends out his own 17th-century violin to Gil Sharon ... Gil Sharon is the artistic director of the Amati Ensemble, which on that day will perform its annual TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) Amati Concert in the Theatre on the Vrijthof in Maastricht.
This will be the first time the Stradivari from 1667 is being lent out by Rieu. André is doing this because the Amati Ensemble is twenty years old this year and the TEFAF is celebrating its 25th edition. (TEAF is The Worlds Leading Art and Antique Fair)
In collaboration with André Rieu Productions and the Stradivari Foundation of Cremona Italy, 9 rare instruments from the renowned 16th and 17th century violin makers Stradivari and Amati are being brought to Maastricht. Gil Sharon, artistic director of the Amati Ensemble is honored on this occasion since he is allowed to play the very rare 1667 Stradivari owned by André Rieu.
The concert theme "Stradivari and Amati - Student and Teacher" refers to the craftsmanship of both famous violin makers.
Thanks to John for finding this and Translating it for us.

What a very interesting article, thanks for posting it! Can you imagine being at a concert with nine Stradivari and Amati on stage- it would be like having nine Michelangelo's in your living room! :)

Thanks,
Jennifer D.
