Antonio Stradivari

The ‘Macdonald’ Viola

A Stradivari viola is the ultimate prize for collectors of musical instruments. In a career spanning 71 years, Stradivari produced around 600 violins and over 60 cellos, but his violas are exceptionally rare, with only 10 examples surviving intact. For this reason the violas are especially treasured.

The last time that a Stradivari viola was on the market was in 1964 when the ‘Macdonald’ was purchased for Peter Schidlof, the celebrated violist of the Amadeus Quartet. Exactly 50 years later it is returning to the market, and the chance to acquire it is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
