The Mozart Violin made by Dalla Costa

The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation’s new Mozart instrument

A private benefactress has donated a violin made by Pietro Antonio Dalla Costa in 1764 to the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation.  It is believed that Mozart owned and played the violin during the years he lived in Vienna. The world’s largest collection of original instruments, portraits, letters and other private objects belonging to the Mozart Family is thus enriched by another important instrument.

The so-called Costa Violin was purchased privately by Dr. Nicola Leibinger-Kammüller, chief executive officer of the TRUMPF GmbH + Co. KG based in Ditzingen near Stuttgart, and donated to the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation. According to the label stuck inside the violin the instrument was made in 1764 by Pietro Antonio Dalla Costa. Experts are of the opinion that the violin is an authentic instrument made by this highly respected member of the so-called Venetian school of violin makers. The complete history of the instrument can be traced from the time when it was made to the present. The benefactress and representatives of the Mozarteum Foundation are in agreement that this wonderful violin should be exhibited in the Mozart museums in Salzburg and regularly played together with the other original instruments.
