For artistic development,
a talented young violinist, viola player or cellist needs to play on a quality instrument made by a first rate violinmaker… a dream that is too often unattainable, because good quality instruments are very expensive, whether they are newly built or old.
Improvement with time,
a stringed instrument needs to be played regularly… Its sound qualities blossom harmoniously when it is played several hours a day by a musician with good technical skills. When it is isolated and silent, the instrument does not better itself.
This is why Talents & Violon’celles
makes it possible for up-and-coming young talent to come into contact with violins, violas and cellos from the cream of French violin makers. Our charitable association lends these young talents the quality instruments that are entrusted to us, that we have acquired or have commissioned, with the help of private or institutional sponsors. A major obstacle to the improvement and development of young musicians is thereby removed.
This balanced and coherent project
brings together violin makers, philanthropic donors and talented musicians in a virtuous, dynamic loop, with a promise of shared excellence and sustainability. The instruments made at the initiative of Talents & Violon’celles will be played by several generations of musicians.
