Musical Instrument Bank

Supports promising young artists by loaning them world-class master musical instruments free of charge.

In 1997 Samsung Foundation of Culture launched a musical instrument
bank program for young artists.

The Samsung Foundation of Culture’s Musical Instrument Bank was
established to help the continuous and exceptional growth of
promising young artists with greatest artistic potential by loaning world-class master musical instruments free of charge to those young artists
so that they embark on and advance their artistic careers.

For this objective, Samsung Foundation of Culture owns four marvelous historic instruments: Violins by Guarneri del Gesu and Antonio Stradivarius,
a viola by Gas paro da salo, a cello by Metteo Goffriller.

Since 2006, Samsung Foundation of Culture’s Musical Instrument Bank has been increasing its expertise and objectivity by loaning instruments to
most prominent performing stars recommended by the Stradivari Society,
which has been highly esteemed as one of the world-famous musical instrument banks.
