On the High Seas with Stradivari & Co.

Noble String Instruments in Talented Hands = Musical Delight

For string players, it is the ultimate goal to play a Stradivari, Guarneri or Guadagnini. Thanks to the generous support of the luthier and violin dealer Florian Leonhard, the LGT Young Soloists were able to play these unique instruments during the entire three-week cruise on the MS Europa 2 from Tokyo to Singapore. A first-rate instrument is of inestimable value for a young musician’s development, but it is almost impossible to purchase such instruments. Therefore, the LGT Young Soloists are very grateful for such generous loans.
