Since 1976, Bein & Fushi has taken its place as the world’s premier dealer and restorer by establishing a firm in the tradition of the greatest shops of the past. At Bein & Fushi, the pulse of the classical music world can be felt—craftsmanship and artistry join forces in an exciting, creative environment dedicated to furthering the art and preserving the rich legacy of our classical music traditions.
Founded by the late Geoffrey Fushi and Robert Bein, the firm provides unparalleled authentication and expertise, the broadest selection of fine antique and modern instruments for students, professionals, and collectors, and world-class repair and restoration service. The Bein & Fushi Certificate is sought-after around the world. John K. Becker, master restorer and expert of rare, antique instruments, began his work with Bein & Fushi in 1979 and became lead restorer of the company’s old instrument workshop several years later as well as Robert Bein’s protégé of instrument identification. In 1994, he established John K. Becker & Company and continues his close collaboration with the firm, providing authentication and restoration.
Bein & Fushi’s international clientele includes many of the world’s most distinguished musicians: Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma, Gil Shaham, Joshua Bell, Nigel Kennedy, Anne-Sophie Mutter, James Ehnes, Gidon Kremer, and the late Isaac Stern, Lord Yehudi Menuhin, and Ruggiero Ricci.
