A dear friend of StockholmCityRental, violinist and artistic leader, Anders Lagerqvist says:
– ” if you choose to visit Stockholm, a must for a music connoisseur is to go to the small and secret museum Musikkulturens främjande at Riddargatan 37. It´s hard to find and open only 2 hours per week, tuesdays and thursdays 11.00 – 12.00. Here you can see original scores, music manuscripts, letters etc by Bethoveen, Mozart, Chopin, Rossini, Shubert and over 500 old instruments. Rudolf Nydahl ( 1882-1973 ), the founder of the museum, was a music loving swede who studied music at the Conservatoire de Paris and became rich when the Swedish state in 1919 monopolized the trade with alcohol and expropriated the Nydahl family wine shop. He used his fortune to build up a fantastic collection of priceless objects for us to enjoy. Absolutely worth a visit! ” http://www.nydahlcoll.se
