Mari Poll rewarded with N. Gagliano 1723 violin

On December 7th 2015 at the initiative of the Republic of Estonia Ministry of Culture, Swedbank Ltd, Estonian National Culture Foundation and maestro Paavo Järvi founded the Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments.


There is a limited amount of valuable string instruments in the world and their value is increasing every day. Those instruments are known for their particular colours and sonority of sound.
On 3rd February 2017 the Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments announces that Mari Poll is a recipient of a three year loan of Nicolaus Gagliano 1723 violin, made in Naples (Filius Alexandri fecit Neap. 1723).

This is another very important recognition of Mari Poll’s artistic achievements.

”I am truly honored for having been given this wonderful instrument. I am very excited and I am looking forward to start playing on it!”
– Mari Poll

“I am sincerely privileged to recognise and thank the founders of the Instrument Foundation and encourage all music friends with missionary sense to support the foundation.”
– Estonian Minister of Culture
 Indrek Saar

“Investing in the instrument foundation is a missionary investment that promotes Estonian culture and musical life as well as provides support to outstanding young musicians. I am very honoured to be a part of the founding of the foundation and making my contribution to it.”
– Paavo Järvi
