OUR INSTRUMENT COLLECTION

Over the years, EMV has collected a valuable collection of unique historical instruments. This collection benefits many musicians and established cultural institutions in our region, and allows EMV to produce concerts of seldom-heard repertoire that requires specialized instruments. The most recent acquisitions to this collection are a splendid set of Baroque timpani that received their debut at our gala performance of Handel’s “Israel in Egypt” on August 7th, 2014. EMV’s collection includes

An 1890s Erard Piano
A French double-manual harpsichord after Taskin built by Edward Turner
An Italian single-manual harpsichord built by Edward Turner
An Italian single-manual harpsichord built by José Verstappen
A chamber organ built by Helmuth Wolff
A set of timpani
And several other string and wind instruments.
