„Musicians perform throughout the world on the rare instruments belonging to the Instrument Foundation. It is an extraordinary experience to hear three of the nine instruments belonging to the Instrument Foundation being played on the same evening“, said the Instrument Foundation board member Marje Lohuaru.

The musicians performing were the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre lector Johanna Vahermägi on a 17th century viola, the cellist Valle-Rasmus Roots on a cello built in 1904 by the master Celeste Farotti in Milan and Theodor Sink, ENSO’s principal cellist on an instrument built in 1842 by the French master Auguste Sébastien Bernardeli (Père).

Maivi Kaljuvee, the owner of the 114 year old cello built in Italy said: „It is a great honour to own a rare instrument, more than one hundred years old, built by a master, but it is an even greater honour to hear a talented musician playing the instrument on the world’s largest concert halls and now for the first time in Rakvere.“
