Re-discover the violin: a new instrument created with the musicians of IMS Prussia Cove
The Violin 2017
Mark Jennings at Prussia Cove - The Violin 2017
Join us to learn about the art of violin-making, as a new instrument is crafted by luthiers Stefan-Peter
Greiner and Mark Jennings, and the world-class musicians of IMS Prussia Cove. The idea for this
exciting new project was formed in September 2016 when acclaimed luthier Stefan-Peter was invited by
the Artistic Director Steven Isserlis to attend the Open Chamber Music seminar. During the seminar, he
met our long-term resident luthier Mark and the two instrument-makers decided to collaborate in the
making of a new instrument, created especially for IMS Prussia Cove. In a truly collective effort, the
violin will be made during Open Chamber Music 2017 – and will come to life with the help of musicians
who have travelled to a remote part of Cornwall from across the world to attend the seminar.
The project will help the musicians to learn about their instruments from the inside out, while providing
an educational blog for followers across the world. Watch with us as a violin is made, step-by-step,
inspired by the unique environment of IMS Prussia Cove. The completed instrument will very
generously be donated to the organisation by the makers, for which we are extremely grateful. Follow
our project as we update the blog every day over the next couple of weeks.
