Modern French soloist viola, Jacques Camurat, Paris 1958

This large, originally labeled and stamped French viola by Jacques Camurat, Paris, made in 1958, is our special recommendation for soloists and professional volists: a fine modern instrument by this prominent maker following his unique, self-confident model. The length of back is 42.4 cm. The tonewoods are beautifully selected: the top is medium grained spruce, the two piece back of attractive, deeply flamed maple. The delicate soundholes characteristic for Jacques Camurat's instruments and the inlaid purfling are traditionally made in the French tradition. The luminous yet transparent orange-brown oil varnish is richly applied, highly glossy and in very good condition with some very slight surface craquellation and slight wear from playing. This instrument has been extensively played by a soloist violist of a Southern German professional orchestra and is maintained with a repair to the treble soundhole in good condition. A prominent but non-critical deformation of the lower rib caused by the chinrest clamp has been checked for stability and verified as uncritical in our atelier - this allows us to offer this fine consigned Jacques Camurat viola at a particularly low price. It has been meticulously worked over and set up by the specialists on our atelier and is offered with a perfect projection and tone like all Corilon instruments in fine condition, ready to play Her huge, resonant sound is warm, clear and precise, even over the strings and well balanced.
