Next Klanggestalten Exhibition

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to this year’s Klanggestalten Exhibition in Dresden
from the 2nd to the 4th of July 2021

36 of Europe’s best violin and bow makers will present their new violins, violas, cellos and double basses along with their bows in the Villa Rothermundt, Dresden.

All instruments and bows may be extensively tried out by participants in separate rooms as well as rented or bought after consentment of their makers.

We especially look forward to this year’s conTakt-project concert involving professors and students from the “Carl Maria von Weber“ Dresden and “Franz Liszt“ Weimar Universities of Music. They shall perform on newly built instruments and bows.

Furthermore, public try-out sessions of all displayed instruments and bows in addition to presentations about violin and bow making will take place.
All this weekend’s present violin and bow makers look forward to your coming by.
Please use this exceptional opportunity to test fantastic newly built instruments and bows as well as to meet their makers. 


 In accordance with current regulations concerning the containment of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have established special hygiene measures in collaboration with the Sächsisches Landesgymnasium für Musik “Carl Maria von Weber”.
