The instruments are part of Christie's 'The Art of Music' sale


Virtuoso Vadim Repin plays seven Stradivari and Guarneri violins, collectively worth many millions. The violins will be shown at a Christie's 'Art of Music' exhibition of instruments for private sale in Shanghai and Hong Kong from 14 October to 29 November.

Sponsored by Steinway & Sons, the exhibition will be accompanied by lectures, art forums and recitals, tracing the history of violin making throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, and placing the achievements of Stradivari and Guarneri with a broader cultural context.
