Red Violin is a masterpiece of musical instruments
Connoisseurs of music history have repeatedly heard of "Red Violin" or "Mendelssohn's Violin". Her charming sound is legendary, and her story cannot leave anyone indifferent. For a long time the tool was considered lost. Then it became something mystical, exceptional.
At the heart of the instrument is a structure, varnish and material that are different from their counterparts in other violins. This allows the Red Mendelssohn to sound different, to create vibrations that will subdue the listener even more. That is why it is worth attending a concert. You will never hear such a violin anywhere else.

Under the guidance of conductor Sergiy Likhomanenko, the orchestra will build a charming bridge between the spectators and the mysterious world of one of Antonio Stradivari's greatest masterpieces.
