The Yale Collection of Musical Instruments recently acquired more than 20 stringed instruments and bows from the Andrew F. Petryn Collection. Here are five of the highlights: violins by Nicolò Amati, Matthias Klotz and Johann Klotz, an 18th-century English cello, and a c.1770 quinton by Nicolas Augustin Chappuy.
