Bach with Stradivarius cello

On September 24, 2012, there was a press conference at the Palacio Real de Madrid (Royal Palace of Madrid) where the Stradivarius violoncello – repaired by the great restorer Carlos Arcieri- was presented.

National Patrimony of Spain requested that I, as a well-qualified cellist, to play the violoncello at the event and to show the world, through the national and international media, that the instrument had indeed recovered all the beauty of its sonority. I was pleased to accept such an important task. That is what happened. I have wanted to put it on my website with the consent of National Patrimony, so that all of you who couldn’t be at the event could hear the beautiful sound of the violoncello you always dreamed of. This jewel of an instrument is at the Palacio Real de Madrid in the company of its sisters from the Stradivarius Quartet.
