See All Concerts > The Dawn of the Stradivarius
In association with The Ashmolean Museum’s extraordinary forthcoming exhibition of the world's finest Stradivarius instruments, Music at Oxford is proud to present this collaborative concert.
Canadian virtuoso and Stradivarius player James Ehnes will perform unaccompanied music by Bach and Paganini on a number of Stradivarius violins and discuss what's unique about them and the sound they produce. This will be the first time one player has ever had the opportunity to do so in a concert setting. Award-winning period ensemble La Serenissima will follow this by performing a programme of music from the age of Stradivarius by Vivaldi, Valentini and their contemporaries.
This event will open the exhibition, a fascinating exploration of the master maker's work featuring the largest collection of Stradivarius instruments ever assembled as well as audiovisual footage featuring James Ehnes.
Don’t miss this exciting event, our 2012-13 season closer. Tickets are bound to be in great demand so please do book early.
