Peter Sheppard Skærved continues his exploration of the 17th Century violin, inspired by the astonishing churches of the Square Mile. This series of salons will explores the dialogue between the great architecture of Wren, Hawksmoor and Hooke, and the work of the violin makers and composers whose instruments and music flooded in the London in the years after the Restoration.

St Margaret Lothbury’s architecture and fittings brings together the work of Wren, Hooke and Grinling Gibbons. It is the perfect place to explore an almost contemporary violin by Antonio Stradivari, playing solo works with a City link, and a particular focus on ‘Scordatura’ or re-tuning.
