Violin

In the culture of the Querini Stampalia family, music had a central role, as it is evidenced by archives and letters.

In the Sixteenth century there are traces of the liute of Zuanne, Francesco’s son. There are some evidence on the violin and dance lessons for children, dated back to the Eighteenth century. The use of spinet study and the minuets book during the family staying in the countryside are dated back to the same period. In the 1800s Alvise Querini was a member of the Philarmonic Academy of Bologna.

Small, yet significant the instrument collection from the 19th and the 18th centuries, exhibited in the rooms of the Museum. It includes a viola, two violins, two oboes, a transverse flute.

The 17th-century violin belonging to Martinus Kaiser, considered a leader of the Venetian lutherie, and two 18th-century bows by Carlo Tononi are definitely remarkable. Regarding the bows, there are just three copies in the world.

With Eugenio Da Venezia's donation, in 1922 it was possible to buy a fortepiano from the first half of the 19th century.

 

The collection of musical manuscripts , enriched with late 17th-century compositions in very refined bound books, is particularly interesting. Some of them are exhibited in the Museum together with musical instruments.
