Description

TREASURES OF ITALIAN VIOLIN MAKING – II

The “Tuscan” by Antonio Stradivari is one of the four instruments and the only violin remaining from the “Medici Quintet”, which Stradivari made in 1690 for the Grand Prince of Tuscany. Currently housed at the Museo degli strumenti musicali dell’Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Roma, the violin is one of the rare Stradivari’s instruments in pristine state of preservation, still fully covered with its original varnish and is an ideal subject for studying the Cremonese Master’s methods and style.

The second issue in our series Treasures of Italian Violin Making allows makers and enthusiasts to appreciate all nuances of this wonderful instrument, thanks to the photos by Jan Röhrmann, micro-CT scans and varnish analyses carried out at the Vienna University and at the Laboratori Arvedi of the Museo del Violino, Cremona, respectively.

The closest any of us will get to looking over the maestro’s shoulder on a Cremonese morning in 1690
