New Exhibit features the Andrew F. Petryn Collection

audience

On January 19, 2016, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments opened a new exhibit featuring exceptional instruments and bows from the Andrew F. Petryn Collection.

Exhibit

The display comprises a quinton, pochette, violoncello, hurdy-gurdy and four violin bows (a pair by the pre-eminent French archetier François Tourte and individual bows by Simon Pierre and François Nicholas Voirin).

Most notably, however, are the two prized violins crafted by two of the finest representatives of the Cremonese school of violin making: Nicolò Amati and Andrea Guarneri.

AniAccompanying the opening of the exhibit was a concert featuring YSM faculty Ani Kavafian, violin; Arthur Haas, harpsichord; and Wei-Yi Yang, piano. Ms. Kavafian demonstrated the remarkable sonorous abilities of the two instruments, as well as their differences of sound, tone, and vibrancy through the works of Bach and Debussy.

The exhibit was organized by curators Susan E. Thompson and Nicholas Renouf.  Members of the museum’s staff who assisted in the installation include Kelly Hill, Program Coordinator, Sam Bobinski, Museum Intern, and Yurie Mitsuhashi, Student Assistant. The Petryn Collection may be viewed during public visiting hours: Tuesday-Friday, 1:00-4:00; Sunday, 1:00-5:00.
