Who are the musicians, who are allowed to perform

on the instruments of the collection?


Not everybody is allowed to use our instruments!

Many of the instruments are in continuous use by the members of the Orpheon Consort or Baroque Orchestra in the concerts, recordings and exhibitions occurring routinely throughout the year. In some rare cases, a professional musician or a student of singular merit receives one or more instruments from the collection for his exclusive use on a permanent basis: he is allowed to keep the instrument throughout his professional career. More typically, a musicians solicits an instrument for a particular project, a recording or an audition, after completion of which the instrument returns to the collection.

Here some of the musicians have been portrayed with "their" instrument.
