Italian violins - the epitome of virtuoso craftsmanship
Corilon's Italian violin collection - certified Italian violins for sale at affordable prices.
Italian violins enjoy an outstanding reputation in the music world and are widely regarded as the ultimate in virtuoso artisanry and excellent acoustic properties. And this belief not only applies solely to the Italian masterpieces of the “golden age” of Cremona in which Antonio Stradivari, Nicolò Amati and Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù brought the modern Italian violin model to the heights which to this day serve as the internationally acknowledged and unsurpassed standard of artisanry. It is their accomplishments and the craft tradition of Italian violins and lutes dating far back to the late Middle Ages which even allowed the Cremonese to achieve what they did, and over the centuries their traditions assumed the nature of a benchmark standard that served as a point of reference, even for the characteristic styles of violin making traditions in other countries.
For example, Italy served as an indispensable source of both knowledge and inspiration as well as premium-quality materials for the work of such masters as Tyrolean Jakob Stainer, whose violins were more popular than the Italian classics up until the early 19th century. In the 20th century, a new circle of excellent contemporary violin makers in Cremona formed on the fringes of the violin making school in Cremona. The major role of Cremona and its historic venue should not detract from the virtues of other regional Italian violin making traditions that also featured perfectly crafted and distinctive Italian violins which are worthy heirs of Amati, Antonio Stradivari and Guarneri – and continually re-interpret the Italian violin anew. The craftsmanship and techniques employed by Italian and Cremona violin makers have had a profound influence on the art of violin making worldwide. Their innovations in design, wood selection, varnish, and construction techniques have shaped the standards and principles followed by contemporary violin makers.
