Italian violin, Romedio Muncher, 1928, Cremona

This recommendable Italian violin was crafted by Romedio Muncher in Cremona, and its powerful sound has the typically soft note that is common to Italian violins. This Cremona violin has Romedio Muncher’s original label on the inside, and he indicated 1928 as the year in which he made it. This date falls within the late period of Aristide Cavalli, who died in 1931, and Romedio Muncher belonged to his "Officina di liuteria artistica Claudio Monteverdi". The defining influences that the style of the officina had on the masters who worked there is unmistakably evident in this violin, which Romedio Muncher produced under his own name. The interesting model with broad shoulders, delicately crafted beesting corners and a well-rounded table is indicative of the thoroughly considered craftsmanship that was typical in Cavalli’s circles. It is no contradiction in terms to note that Cavalli’s philosophy entailed a close and thoughtful look back at the great classics of Italian violin making. Instead, the Officina Claudio Monteverdi served as a “bridge to the present,” as musicologist Walter Kolneder aptly described the situation in his reference work "The Amadeus Book of the Violin". An aesthetic echo of earlier traditions can be seen in this Cremonese violin’s full and indubitably Italian scroll. The instrument’s sophisticated and luminous reddish-brown varnish radiates a sense of youthful freshness. After having carefully set up this perfectly preserved Italian violin at our specialist atelier for restoration, it is now ready to play, and we warmly recommend it because of its large, voluminous sound and its bright, exceptionally warm character.
