The Moscow Camerata Chamber Orchestra, led by violinist and artistic director Dmitri Kogan, presents 'Five Great Violins', a programme of popular classics at London’s Barbican Centre on 30 March 2015.

The solos are played on five instruments by the great masters: Nicolò Amati, Antonio Stradivarius, Giuseppe Guarnieri del Gesù, J.B. Guadagnini and Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume, acquired through the Kogan Fund, which was launched to acquire and restore great instruments for deserving Russian musicians.
