The Violin Project
In September 2017 a new instrument was crafted by luthiers Stefan-Peter Greiner and Mark Jennings, with the enthusiastic help of IMS Prussia Cove musicians. This exciting collaborative project helped the musicians to learn about their instruments from the inside out, creating an instrument inspired by the unique environment of IMS Prussia Cove. Visit our blog to read about the process and look at our beautiful photos:

IMS Prussia Cove is a charitable organisation dedicated to music-making at the highest level, fostering new generations of talented musicians from across the world, supporting musical idealism and enabling international collaboration. Founded in 1972 by the great violinist Sandor Végh, and with Steven Isserlis as Artistic Director since 1996, IMS Prussia Cove has become one of classical music’s most respected institutions.
