Mittenwald master violin, Neuner & Hornsteiner, approx. 1830

The ateliers of Neuner & Hornsteiner reached the zenith of their art until the mid-19th century, and from there they went on to define the standards of the Mittenwald craft for many years. They incorporated the influences of the finest international violin-making schools and were highly successful around the globe. This especially powerful master violin dates back to this successful period. It was patterned after a model by Mathias Neuner and bears a model label and yet is unmistakably a masterpiece made by a matured craftmans hand. The thin coat of dark-red varnish with many marks and traces from playing is typical of Mittenwald style. Over the years the varnish has darkened and developed a lovely patina. The well-proportioned scroll and pegbox is a highly elegant carving placed on a robust neck. The larger size of the neck means it is especially well-suited for men; it is without any crack or damage in very good condition and was meticulously set up in our atelier. It is ready to play and will win amateur and professional players over with its powerful, resonant sound, which is clear and rich in overtones, full of a pleasant warmth and strength.
