Viotti and Stradivari at the Royal Academy of Music 2016

Delighted to team up with Peter Sheppard Skaerved, John Dilworth, Barbara Meyer and Luca Alessandri to discuss the 1709 Viotti Stradivari for a study day at the Royal Academy of Music in September 2016. There wasn’t much more that I could add to John Dilworth’s survey of the instrument, so I spoke about the Enlightenment instead to investigate Viotti’s soundworld and the advances in musical sound that gave Stradivari violins their modern significance.
