Italian cello made by Lorenzo Locatelli in 2018

This Italian cello is a first-class soloist instrument with excellent sound, built by Lorenzo Locatelli in 2018 in the characteristic modern Cremonese style - a young, expressive and beautiful sounding work in perfect condition, with original certificate of the builder.

The clear intention to create an instrument for the highest musical demands is unmistakably expressed in every detail of this Lorenzo Locatelli cello. Beginning with the selection of the finest tonewoods - flawless spruce for the top and maple of a rarely found, delicate flaming for the back and sides - Locatelli pays extreme attention to every step of the work, giving this cello an unmistakable personality that is especially expressed in the brightly primed, luminous orange-brown varnish and in the beautifully designed scroll. We purchased the instrument in perfect condition from a professional musician and have gone through it with the utmost care in our specialist violin making workshop and prepared it ready to play. Its bright, clear and richly colored sound formulates an artistically highly interesting statement that reveals Lorenzo Locatelli's rootedness in classical Italian violin making as well as his sensitivity to the needs of contemporary musicians who desire a versatile, beautiful-sounding and playable instrument for the interpretation of solo literature from different eras.
