About Fabbri

WELCOME to the 5th Avenue Mansion of Edith and Ernesto Fabbri. Edith, a great-granddaughter of Cornelius Vanderbilt and Ernesto, an associate of J. Pierpont Morgan and son of a prominent Florentine family made their home here on Millionaires’ Mile in 1916.

The House, furnished in Italian Baroque and Renaissance style, boasts a magnificent library where Fabbri Chamber Concerts take place ‘salon style’. Built in 1609 for the palace of the Duke of Urbino, the library was preserved during World War I by the Fabbri’s who shipped it to New York and incorporated it into their home. Fritz Kreisler inaugurated it with a recital in 1917.

The Fabbri name and legacy live on in the Fabbri Chamber Concerts. The Library is an oasis of elegance and acoustic perfection. Fabbri Chamber Concerts is proud to have presented world-class artists here for 20 years.

It’s thrilling to sit up close and hear the artists discuss what they will perform. Our programs are varied and exciting. Each concert is followed by a candle-light reception where audience and musicians can meet and mingle over a glass of champagne or wine.
