Klanggestalten in Berlin, October 2018

On the 19 - 21st October, 33 of Europe’s finest violin and bow makers will display their recent works at the Dussmann Saal, Musikgymnasium Carl Phillipp Emanuel Bach, Berlin.
This is a rare opportunity to try these outstanding new instruments and bows, and to meet the people who create them.

The exhibited instruments and bows can be played and tested extensively in secluded rooms. Provision is offered to borrow or purchase the exhibits. Apart from the many opportunities for the exchange of ideas, visitors are also invited to the concerts and open sessions, sound-trials of instruments and bows, lectures about violin and bow making.

We would like to warmly welcome you to our exhibition!
