Tokyo Stradivarius Festival 2018

Stradivariuses are said to have complete forms to create supreme sounds. We have organized a large-scaled exhibition where violins themselves, the genealogy of their birth, circumstances of their production, records of owners and scientific experiments to resolve their secret are shown. We call the beautiful and mysterious phenomenon that Stradivarius’ sounds give humans ‘f’enomenon, and analyze it from four points of view.

 

It has been three centuries since Antonio Stradivari developed the formula that continues to define the pinnacle of violinmaking art. What is the secret of these instruments’ miraculous sound? Isi t pure craftsmanship, or some magical interaction of wood and varnish? At the exhibition, we will call on classical musicians and modern technologists to help us unravel the mysteries of the Stradivarius sound, and the unique way it resonates in our hearts.
