For the first time, the Rijksmuseum is presenting an overview of musical instruments for performances in the home. Virginal, theorbo, clavichord, violin, harpsichord, harp, flute, pianos, mandolin and a chamber organ can all be seen until 18 June 2017 at the 'Music at Home' exhibition.
This small exhibition displays a selection of musical highlights from instrument collections of the Rijksmuseum and the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (municipal museum in The Hague), the two most important collections of their kind in the Netherlands. In the area around the showcase in which the instruments are displayed, visitors will hear recordings of pieces performed by Early Music students from the conservatories in Amsterdam and The Hague.
