A superb violin from the last years of the maker’s life, the ‘Brusilow’ is in an incredible state of preservation. Played for many years by Anshel Brusilow during his years as concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the instrument displays many of the idiosyncratic qualities that characterise the late period of ‘del Gesù’. Includes scans and measurements.
‘It has a kind of powerful three-dimensionailty that hits the eyes and makes the viewer want to touch it lightly in order to scan its unpredictable surface’
– Alberto Giordano in the December 2015 issue
