This violin has a wonderfully radiant sound. It is capable of carrying far into a concert hall and projecting over a piano or orchestra. The instrument has a sharp response under the fingers and performs with brilliance for fast passagework. This instrument has a wonderful quality of being able to play a beautiful pianissimo yet still able to project to the back of a hall. It is highly responsive to the player’s demands, able to easily move through a full dynamic range.
It has an exquisite one-piece back with strong vibrant flame and matching ribs, neck and scroll. The front has a consistent tight grain and a rich transparent vanish made in the modern cremonese tradition.
