The instrument, Stradivari violin, was made in 1720.

In the Academic Chapel on Thursday 21st will be held an unusual concert of the Symphony Orchestra Choir (Conductor - Richard Hegland, soloist - Michael Antonello).

. Specially for the concert at the State Academic Chapel of St. Petersburg famous American violinist Michael Antonello bring violin works of the great Italian master Antonio Stradivari. The American dream for many years on the acquisition of the celebrated masters of the violin. As soon as one of the most valuable Stradivarius violin known as the Ex-Rochester, has become available, Antonello immediately bought it.

The instrument was made in 1720, when Stradivari was 76 years old, and he was in the prime creative force. The first 100 years of history of the violin are not known, but in 1820 (in Rochester, England), each owner can be traced down to Antonello.

This exclusive tool will be filled with historical violin concerto by Brahms.
