Our Philosophy

Great Greek philosopher and mystic Pythagoras believed that music was the unifying principle of the universe that brought order to chaos.
 
Pythagoras was convinced that music could heal body and soul, and wanted all men to listen to music to improve the human condition. This is our belief too. We, at Viva Audio, believe that music is what gives sense to the world. It is the ultimate expression of human culture.
 
It can take on different shapes and forms, but its essence remains the same – expressing emotions, evoking our humanity and transforming our reality. We believe the experience of listening to and hearing music requires sonic reproduction of the highest quality. We also believe in the tradition of musical instruments as works of art. Amati, Montagnana, Guarneri, and Stradivari set the best examples that we strive to match as we make Viva Audio the perfect companion for all those who care for and live by music.
