Thought I knew a bit about acoustics. Wrong. This 500 seat venue is not only a design marvel but a musician's dream stage. Attended Aurelia Macovei's midday performance here. Outstanding. Artist and instrument can sometimes be inseparable but without perfect acoustics the artist's vision can just evaporate . Here it doesn't. Bravo !

We were going to tour the violin museum and showed up at about 11:45. The ticket seller asked if we wanted a ticket to a violin performance starting at noon. Sure. We did not really know what to expect and enjoyed tremendously the solo performance of several pieces on a Stradivarius from the museum collection. It’s a large enough venue that you should not need to pre-book tickets. Later that evening we attended a performance that was part of the Monteverdi Festival. It’s a wonderful place to hear music. Good sight lines, wonderful acoustics, and very comfortable seats. And architecturally stunning. There is a large series of photographs in the lobby, showing the progress of construction on the room.

The violins in the museum need to be played routinely. So they invite violinists from all over the world to come and play them. We had made advance reservations to attend a violin concert before leaving the USA, which was held in the auditorium. This auditorium is beyond stunning with excellent acoustics. We were treated to a delightful performance by a Russian artist by the name of Aurelia Macovei. She performed several pieces using the “Clisbee” violin made by Stradivari in 1669. The sounds coming from this instrument were breathtaking! (P.S. An armed guard stood a short distance away for the entire time the violin was out of its alarmed display case in the Treasure Room!)

We listened to a viola and a Stradivari played - that in itself is an amazing experience. The auditorium is beautifully crafted. Worth a visit together with a tour of the museum if time permits you.
