Montblanc Donation Pen honouring Classical Conductors 2012

Montblanc’s Donation Pens honour outstanding personalities from the world of classical and contemporary music such as Herbert von Karajan and Johann Sebastian Bach. Connecting the idea of perfection and craftsmanship, in 2012, Montblanc pays tribute to the great music virtuoso Johannes Brahms with the Donation Pen Johannes Brahms Special Edition.

The overall design of this Special Edition reflects the style of the composer’s music: traditional yet pioneering and inventive. The handcrafted Montblanc masterpiece is complemented by details inspired by the fascinating world of classical music to which Brahms dedicated his life. The cap and barrel of the writing instrument are made of black precious resin enhanced with platinum-plated fittings. The clip shaped like a tuning fork and the five lines of a music staff decorating the cap bring to mind the excitement of his symphonies and orchestras tuning up before a performance.

As a mark of its uncompromising quality and craftsmanship, the iconic Montblanc emblem crowns the writing instrument, while the cap is elegantly engraved with Brahms’ signature. With this elegant product, Montblanc is presenting a writing instrument that has been crafted with care to serve a lifetime of personal expression with the handcrafted, rhodium-plated 14 K gold nib, decorated with a dove of peace: the sign of love and peace found on all Donation Pens.

The Montblanc Donation Pen Johannes Brahms Special Edition is available as Fountain Pen, Rollerball and Ballpoint Pen in all Montblanc Boutiques from May 2012. To complete the classical music experience, each Johannes Brahms Special Edition is accompanied by a tuning fork.

Brahms and Montblanc – patrons of fine arts

With the purchase of each Donation Pen Johannes Brahms Special Edition, 20 Euros from the fountain pen and 10 Euros from the ballpoint pen or rollerball will be donated to carefully selected cultural projects relating to classical music, thus supporting young artists worldwide and carrying on the heritage left behind by Brahms.
