Promotion of Talent

„Only love understands the secret of giving and getting richer at the same time.”

Clemens von Brentano

Ludwig van Beethoven and Prince Lichnowsky, Richard Wagner and Ludwig II, Frédéric Chopin and the Rothschilds: outstanding musicians have always had need of support from patrons. Throughout history, their enthusiasm and financial generosity have helped make it possible for important works of art to be given to society.

Even today the demand for civic commitment on the part of patrons is great; art requires that artists should concentrate on what is essential. What is more, musicians are often in need of instruments but are held back by the limits of their economic capabilities.

Are you owner of a high-quality stringed instrument? Or would you like to invest in a valuable tangible asset that will simultaneously give expression to your love for music? Then we invite you to become a patron!

By loaning your instrument to a highly gifted musicians, you will enable a young artist or establishes solo musician to develop his or her artistic skill in the best possible way.
