“Two names have always dominated the French School of bowmaking: François Tourte, the Stradivari of the bow, who died at age 87; and a few years later, the person who influenced the entire 19th century French school until 1874: Dominique Peccatte.

Two different styles, each with its enthusiasts among the greatest violinists, violists and ’cellists.

Certain so-called hatchet bows were, at the beginning of this century, attributed to Dominique Peccatte, although they were made by his contemporaries or students, whose work was confused with that of the master.

This volume will provide additional clarifications on the life and work of this great bowmaker.”

Forward by Etienne Vatelot, Paris, 1996
