1706 Brott-Turner Tecchler cello

This cello, built in Rome, is one of the finest pieces by David Tecchler. An excellent maker whose instruments are highly valued, Tecchler produced some 50 cellos. His cellos are particularly sought after because of their rich sonorous tone. This was the first instrument acquired for the MIB and is a career loan to Denis Brott.

  • Donated thanks to the fundraising efforts of W.I.M. Turner and the Brott Family 
  • Acquired: 1987
  • Value: $900,000
