With each new album, the Stradivari collection invites you to discover another unique instrument lovingly preserved and housed at the Museum of Music in Paris, such as the magnificent 1734 Guarneri cello and the 1855 Gebauhr grand piano, both of them exceptionally well suited to the music of Beethoven and his contemporaries.
