Cremona - Kremlin Project
How the Cremona-Kremlin project was born
In the fall of 2004, Christian Zenz, President of Amati Trading LLC & Amati Books, an avid aficionado of fine instruments and everything related, visited Moscow to sign an agreement for the distribution of a recently published book, "The Great Russian Collection" - a catalog of 283 unique string instruments in the possesion of the famous State Collection of Russia.
His Moscow guide was Misha Rachlevsky, Artistic Director and Conductor of Chamber Orchestra Kremlin. During this visit when C. Zenz was introduced to the Orchestra and heard it perform, he envisioned a grand project unite today's practitioners, those of Cremonese violinmaking and Russian string playing. His idea was met wich much enthusiasm by Misha Rachlevsky, and the Cremona-Kremlin project was born.
The 17 Cremonese that will be plaied in the concerts all around the world by Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, were selected from a pool of 47 instruments/makers, who responded to Mr. Zenz's invitation and submitted theyr creations for this project.
