Enjoy a coffee while learning about one of the world’s finest violins. 

Carlo Bergonzi was the last of Cremona’s great luthiers, and this instrument from 1735 is one of his most famous creations. Listen to Italian violin maker Andrea Zanrè talk about the violin. One of the jewels of Sparebankstiftelsen’s Dextra Musica collection, the instrument is currently on loan to the museum’s “Master to Master” exhibition. It can be heard on a regular basis in the Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, where it is played by the leader of the orchestra, Guro Kleven Hagen. 

The event is free with a valid entrance ticket to the museum purchased here.
