AN EXTRAORDINARY RECORDING PROCESS
Situated in the city of Cremona and the home of these precious instruments, the Museo Del Violino enabled the project by allowing the recordings to take place.
The Auditorium Giovanni Arvedi was purpose-built to allow stringed instruments to sound their very best.
The concert hall was designed by Italian architect Giorgio Palù, with consultation from pioneering acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota.
32 microphones were placed around the concert hall in order to capture every possible timbre from each instrument.
All of the recordings were carried out under armed guard, due to the exceptionally high value of the instruments used.
