Receiving the new instrument
In the morning of the 1st of March, Mari Poll officially signed the contract for a violin that has been lent to her by Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments. This was the moment when she tried and played the instrument for the first time. Nicolaus Gagliano’s violin is the great sounding piece of art made in 1723 in Naples (Italy). It came with a brilliant and beautiful sound and facilities so it brought a joy on Mari’s face when she started playing on it. The same day 5 other Estonian successful musicians got instruments from Estonian Foundation, three violins, viola and cello. This is a very important event for Estonian music life and a great example to all other societies and countries that are rich with musical talents.
Aare Kaarma and Mari Poll
Mari had a huge honour to meet Aare Kaarma, the investor, thanks to who the Gagliano’s violin is now part of Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments.
I am endlessly thankful to Mr. Kaarma and Estonian Foundation of Musical Instruments for this great opportunity to play on such a good instrument. Investing in culture is a great way to contribute not only to a musician, but also to the entire society that we are living in and improving its cultural awareness. I will give my best to promote Estonian art and culture in the best way with this instrument all around the world, and to perform with it in Estonia as often as possible.” Mari Poll
