Violin op. 13 by Alajos Werner, Budapest, 1910

At the age of only 24, the Budapest luthier Alajos Werner crafted this violin so flawlessly that it suggests the work of a mature master with decades of experience, even though it hails from a promising young violin maker. With this instrument, his opus 13, Alajos Werner proves to be a faithful student of the Hungarian violin-making tradition, an art introduced to him by his teachers Andreas Baumann and later Mihály Reményi. As can be seen in this violin, his excellent achievements paved his way towards significant ateliers elsewhere in Europe. In 1913 he began working under Giuseppe Fiorini in Munich, and after periods at Haudek and Poller in Vienna and at Hug & Co. in Zurich, he gradually made his way to W.E. Hill & Sons in London. From 1929 on, Werner operated his own atelier in Budapest, where he had a lasting influence on Hungarian violin making through his many students and employees. In its perfect and undamaged condition, this violin provides us an authentic glance at the early oeuvre of Alajos Werner; his justified sense of self-confidence is reflected in the high-quality purfling, the cleanly carved and well-proportioned sound holes, and the large, expressive scroll. He selected the finest tone woods and coated them with a thick layer of orange-red oil varnish which tastefully highlights the dynamic narrow flames of the two-piece maple back. After having been carefully set up at our specialist workshop for restoration, the violin is ready to play, and we recommend it both for its historical value as well as its outstanding playing and acoustic properties.
