Over the years, Rare Violins of New York has had the incredible opportunity to acquire, restore, and sell many fine instruments created by the most highly renowned instrument makers in history.
Joint event with AB Bernstein and America Israel Cultural Foundation
In partnership with AB Bernstein, we were proud to co-host "Impact Investing is Instrumental", an evening of conversation about art, music, and philanthropy. Internationally recognized scientist and entrepreneur, Dr. Ueno, spoke about the social and artistic benefits of investing in fine instruments, also reflecting on his personal experience as a collector. Following his presentation, guests enjoyed a performance by internationally-renowned violinist Mayu Kishima. Winner of the 2016 Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, Ms. Kishima plays an Antonio Stradivari violin known as the "ex-Petri”. Her instrument is on loan from the Ryuji Ueno Foundation, an organization established by Dr. Ueno in 2015. The event was presented at the David Benrimon Fine Art Gallery, a fitting space for this evening of dialogue.
