Instruments for the Czech Philharmonic
PPF Group has lent musical instruments worth nearly CZK 20 million, crafted by master instrument markers, to the Czech Philharmonic’s violin section. These six rare string instruments, when placed in the hands of seasoned musicians, have made the sound of the orchestra all the richer.
