    Full description

    The cremona violin is covered by an orange light brown spirit varnish and ready to be played by an excellent musician.
    "This personal model is based on and inspired by the great maestro of modern violinmaking of the 20th Century - Giuseppe Ornati. In my opinion, he represents a peak of the combination between personal artistry and the deeply rooted Cremonese classical influence. It is thus aesthetical experimentation of tradition lined up with modern limpidness. The spruce is from the forest of the Dolomiti Mountains in northeast Italy. It is known to be the same area where Stradivari and other grandmasters would go for resonance wood. The climate and altitude make them grow evenly and straight towards the sky, resulting in ideal resonant quality. I prefer spruce that is light and strong, with a particular sheen of light in its texture. The perfectly quarter-sawn one-piece back maple is from Bosnia. I appreciate the solid medullary rays that run across the grain. They are my guidelines when I work with the wood. The flames are intense but not too imposing. They leave some space like the void in a painting. The flames' distribution is also like landmarks telling me how to tune the plate. It might be that the violin is an extension of the memory of the tree from which it is made. And from the moment when it is being played, it carries on memories in the musical legacy. The lifespan of a human being is much shorter than a tree and a violin, so the violin is like the storyline being passed in the tribes from generation to generation, itself being the collective memory. A violin maker is who ventures to tell a story while adding some variant in each version (exactly like in the mythologies!)." Anqi Ni

      Violin bow by Marta Lucchi, silver mounted

      By Marta Lucchi  |  , Cremona

      A violin bow crafted by the hands of a master maker. Marta’s long experience as a bow maker allows expressiveness in her characteristic work that follows her father’s style. In our opinion, the high point of this violin bow is its bold squared head.
