Postcards from Cremona

October 1, 2012

And finally, Stradivari's shirt. Okay, not really, unless you use your imagination, but it's his balcony, anyway. 

If you're near Cremona, you can visit the place until 7 October as part of the Stradivariazioni exhibition there.
These seem to be going down well, so here's Stradivari's window!
Stradivari's stairs...
Stradivari's first house...
In Cremona you can try to sell anything with the help of a violin...
The Strad stand packed up and ready to go at the end of another Cremona Mondomusica. 
Sore feet and buzzing brains all round.
Thank you to everyone who came by to see us and if you didn't, maybe see you next year?
And the first prize-winners of the Cremona Triennale are... Ulrich Hinsberger (violin); Ulrika Dederer (viola); Marco Nolli (double bass). No first for cellos but Krzysztof Krupa won second. 
Ulrika is the first woman to win first prize at the Triennale, so let's hear it for the girls!
Here's a picture from the concert, with the winning instruments being used.
Are you in Cremona? What do you think of the results? Discuss them on our new forum,
The view from The Strad's box at the Ponchielli Theatre in Cremona for the start of the Triennale awards ceremony. The tension mounts...
The Strad will be at Cremona Mondomusica from 28-30 September.

Come and visit the team behind the magazine at stand 118, where posters, DVDs, the latest issue, special publications and The Strad Calendar 2013 will be available for purchase.
