The great exhibition in the sports hall adjoining the Altrheinhalle, extending across an area of more than 1200 m²
The impressive exhibition, one of the largest in the world and held in the adjoining large sports hall is a popular destination before and after the concerts. A vast choice of historic instruments will be on display for the knowledgeable visitor: in particular all kinds of recorders, ranging from the highest to the lowest register, in different pitches, copies of originals from the middle ages, the Baroque and the Romantic periods, as well as contemporary models. Useful accessories will be available, ranging from maintenance products to hand-made music stands. There will also be transverse flutes of all stylistic periods, historic single- and double reed instruments, Indian wooden flutes, gemshorns, as well as hurdy-gurdies, psalteries, drums and harpsichords. Instrument makers from Europe and Overseas will be present, happy to talk to you and to offer their expertise in the repair of instruments. Music publishers and specialised music shops offer advice and exhibit the most recent sheet music publications. You may also be able to find a bargain in the range of second hand music and instruments, and there will be a good selection of specialist literature and recordings.
Last but not least the exhibition is a good place to meet people and to contact musicians, publishers, teachers and societies.
Entry is free.
