Maker Background

She first fell in love with the violin at the age of 7 and played until the age of 19. Knowing however that she wanted to do something a little more introspective her curiosity was immediately sparked by the skills of her local violin maker Antonio Menzel.

When she graduated from high school Antonio took her in as an apprentice, and the following year she applied to the violin making school of Parma. Here she had the fortune to study under the guidance of Renato Scrollavezza, Elisa Scrollavezza, Andrea Zanrè, Michele Dobner and Frèdèric Noharet.

Besides creating new instruments, she has a great passion for restoration and has attended masterclasses by Hans Nebel and Sharon Que over the years.

In 2019 she opened up shop in Parma together with partner Pietro Iotti.

Maker Interview

Why did you start making instruments?

I always felt very rooted in the past, and besides my love of music, I nurtured a strong interest in history from an early age. So when I first entered the shop of my violin maker, it somehow felt like an ‘encounter with eternity,’ Noise from the streets disappeared when stepping into the old crooked house in the heart of Flensburg, and your nose filled up with earthy scents of wood, resin, and glue. It was like stepping back in time, and I immediately felt a strong connection with that world.

Why are your instruments so special?

Making instruments, for me, is the perfect combination of artistry and precision work. Pietro and I keep a close record of every step of the making process to continue to perfect the tonal quality and the comfort of playing.

I aim to create beautiful instruments with clean lines but with a soft quality to the varnish that feels inviting to the player.

What is your inspiration?

For me, the artistic process is a quiet and somewhat meditative one. I also practice yoga and see many similarities between the asana practice and mastering the skills and concentration needed to work with the materials you use.

However, the process only comes full circle when the artist finally plays the instrument. I love taking an active part in the world of music and grab every opportunity to go out and meet musicians, hear them playing, and hear their feedback.

Thanks to the entire team at miocannone.com, in such a simple, fast, and safe way, always with great attention and dedication, has helped me find the right choice. With all the comfort and safety I have made a great purchase. Fantastic violin, I was surprised by the quality and beauty of the instrument, very well made - grade 10 for Agnete Vibe. I wish you all the success in your professional life, congratulations to everyone.
