The structural analysis of historical musical instruments is essential for the definition of restoration and conservation protocols, but also for the study of ancient manufacturing techniques and for the acoustic analysis of these precious objects. The use of synchrotron light microtomography has proved to be the ideal tool for a non-destructive approach in the analysis of instruments of historical importance such as eighteenth-century Italian violins or masterpieces in the history of music such as the first Neanderthal flute and the organs built with paper pipes for the most influential medieval families in Europe.

Aleksandr Porfir’evič Borodin (1833-1887)
String quartet No. 2
I. Allegro moderato in D major and 2/2 time
III. Notturno: Andante in A major
Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2 in D major differs from many of the composer’s other works in two ways: it was completed quickly, during August 1881, and it lacks a published program. These two factors may be related; Borodin dedicated the quartet to his wife Ekaterina, and it was written as an evocation of when they met and fell in love in Heidelberg 20 years earlier. The composer seems to have represented himself in this quartet with the cello (he was an amateur player), while Ekaterina is portrayed by the first violin.
