The story behind this fantastic violin that I'm so incredibly lucky to play, is so beautiful, like a fairytale! Thanks for sharing @the_vieuxtemps_kid and @florianleonhard for being so generous lending this huge woody diamond to me🙏🏻❤️ Enjoy reading this #repost:
"Duke of Edinburgh" Stradivarius 1724

Special dedication to Mari Samuelsen @samuelsenofficial.
____________________

Norwegian violinist Mari Samuelsen currently performs on this fine violin, on generous loan from Florian Leonhard Fine Violins @florianleonhard.
____________________

The 1st Duke of Cambridge, Prince Adolphus (1774-1850) bought the violin from Count Platen of Hanover, the original owner, who himself purchased the violin directly from Antonio Stradivari.

Prince Adolphus was the great-great-grandfather of the current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

The violin was then passed to his son, the 2nd Duke of Cambridge, Prince George (1819-1900) upon his death in 1850.

The 2nd Duke of Cambridge lent the violin to the South Kensington Exhibition in 1872, where the violin featured prominently next to the exceptional ‘Messiah’ Stradivari of 1716 and a number of other fine violins.
____________________

In 1874, Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna Romanova (Daughter of Alexander ll of Russia) married Prince Albert, The Duke of Edinburgh (1844-1900). She was the first and only Romanov to marry into the British Royal Family.

In around 1880, Queen Victoria, persuaded Prince George to give the violin to her 4th child, Prince Albert, which the violin was named after.
____________________

Following the death of The Duke of Edinburgh, the violin passed to his wife, Duchess Marie. It was from Duchess Marie that Dr Dwight J Partello, a US consular and Treasury official working then in Berlin, acquired the violin.

In his will, Dr Partello bequeathed the violin to the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC, USA.

This attracted worldwide protests from the leading players of the day, including Kreisler, Ysaye, Elman and Heifetz.

They proceeded to advocate strongly against the prospect of this fine violin to be left unplayed in a museum. Luckily, they were successful in this endeavour and the violin

What an amazing history that violin has! Now it comes alive once again with its finest music yet!

You have been blessed!

I hope I get to meet you somewhere down the road and try out this beautiful Straddie😁😁😁

Thanks mam

No doubt you have a very important musical and historical jewel in your hands. However, I consider that the magic of your music does not come from him. But your feelings found in your heart and your soul. Your music is only beautiful and excellent for your soul and feelings. This is heavenly.

A match made in heaven !

Hi. I could not find in the post when the switch occurred from the Guad to the Strad. Could you tell us when it happened please, so we can know which violin is played in the videos?

i am in love

Rebecca Di Majo

Wow! Congratulations on receiving such a treasure. Enjoy playing it and we will enjoy the listening part. Greetings from Curaçao, little island in the Caribbean.

Glad to know you are still playing a Stradivarius, just watched you play the four seasons and you owned it. It was amazing and the sound of the violin I was hoping to find it is a Stradivarius in the same way a Steinway is recognisable. Are you coming to England to play soon?

You are really fantastic violinist

Bio

Highly acclaimed Norwegian violinist Mari Samuelsen has enjoyed a remarkable rise on the international concert stage through a characteristic mixture of artistry and enterprise. Her concerts combine a breathtaking musical finesse and virtuosity and an imaginative and innovative approach to presentation.

For more than 25 years she has also collaborated in duo with her brother, cellist Hakon Samuelsen, performed together, connecting with audiences and musicians around the world. In spring 2015, they released their debut album, Pas de Deux, Mercury/Decca (Universal), the centrepiece of which was a new work written for them by the Oscar-winning composer, the late James Horner. It went directly to no. 1 in the Norwegian pop charts, the first classical album to do so in more than 20 years.

Mari Samuelsen has appeared as soloist at some of the world’s most prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall, New York; Théâtre des Champs – Elysées, Paris; Konzerthaus, Berlin; Smetana Hall, Prague; Kremlin Hall, Moscow and the Victoria Hall, Geneva, most recently making debuts in recital at the Barbican, London and the KKL, Lucerne, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, at the Hollywood Bowl and the opening concert of the Montreux Jazz Festival.  Mari works regularly with the composer Max Richter, as the soloist, in concert performances of both his “Recomposed “and “Memoryhouse “,  as well as on his recent Deutsche Grammophon album “Three Worlds – Music from Woolf Works”.

She is founder and artistic director of ‘A Christmas concert from Norway’ which she started together with her brother in 2003. It’s been broadcast several years on the Norwegian BBC (NRK) and in the US through PBS, hosted by Princess Märtha Louise  of Norway.

Mari Samuelsen has also been artistic director of Yellow Lounge in Norway and bringing the Berlin-born club night to Oslo, collaborating with partners such as the pre-eminent video artist, Philipp Geist, keeping classical music in the mix at the forefront of contemporary art.

Her latest album, Nordic Noir, released on Decca in September 2017, went again straight to top of Norwegian pop chart (2nd place). Her upcoming and ongoing collaborations with leading composers of today, as well as electronic music artists such as Jeff Mills and Dubfire, puts Mari Samuelsen in a position as an artist who is thriving and new thinking, being innovative and reaching out to new audiences.

Mari Samuelsen plays the ‘Duke of Edinburgh’ Stradivarius 1724, generously on loan from Florian Leonhard Fine Violins, London.
