Mario Gadda, Italian violin after Oreste Candi, 1984 (certificate Mario Gadda)

This modern Italian violin is a late work by Mario Gadda in Mantova which he made himself on the model of Oreste Candi in 1984, as confirmed by the original certificate by Mario Gadda. The appearance of the instrument, a remittance work made for an Italian collector, is determined by Oreste Candi's slim and elegant Italian design, and the brandstamp on the button and Mario Gadda's model label, as well as a certificate by Mario Gadda indicate its provenance. This work is heir of the Mantuan school, which extended from Mario Gadda's father, Gaetano Gadda, to his instructor Scarampella, and even back to Tommaso Balestrieri. Liberally applied bright golden-yellow varnish points towards those great predecessors and gives the violin its striking appearance. If there is one attribute that defines Italian violins, it is their distinctive sound, which is wonderfully developed in this mature violin. Its voice is shining and strong, bright, rich in overtones and a singing character, an extremely powerful and carrying instrument for soloists that we can recommend without reserve. We offer this late Mario Gadda master violin in perfectly preserved condition. It has been thoroughly gone over by our luthiers and is, as all Corilon instruments, offered ready to play. A certificate by Mario Gadda is included in the price and can be viewed with the "certificate" button.
