Description

This basse de violon was bequeathed in 1846 to Prince Albert by Domenico Dragonetti, the great virtuosi of the double bass who knew both Haydn and Beethoven. It was later put at the disposal of Queen Victoria's Private Band where it was played to entertain the queen and her guests.

Watch this film to learn about the behind the scenes restoration that went in to making it playable and listen to Chi-chi Nwanoku perform a piece composed by Dragonetti himself.
