Fine Viennese master violin by Franz Angerer, 1898

This attractive master violin by Franz Angerer is an authentic piece of Viennese musical culture dating back to the late 19th century, a time at which its craftsman was a significant figure as as a musician and composer. Before founding his workshop, Franz Angerer was a member of Johann Schrammel’s legendary quartet and went on to spend many years playing in the Burgtheater orchestra. At the same time, he also had a major influence in his field: both as a highly regarded member of Vienna’s guild for makers of brass and stringed instruments and as the teacher of many students. His broadly contoured Stradivarius model with delicate sound holes shaped the work of his son, Franz Angerer jun., and his student Josef Hlawsa, who took over Franz Angerer’s well-established workshop in 1913. This violin encompasses Franz Angerer’s personal style, an aesthetically and acoustically well-crafted instrument which has been kept in outstanding condition. It has only one minimal repair on the outer edge of the right sound hole. The attractive and expressively carved scroll reflects the rich experience of the master, who had reached the zenith of his work as a luthier around the turn of the century. The finely-grained spruce of the top and deep flames of the maple used for the two-piece back are excellent tone woods, and they have been enhanced by a thick coat of orange-brown oil varnish which is radiant in its transparency. The aesthetically appealing varnish has a historic maturity with delicate crackling; interesting traces of use confirm that good musicians ranked amongst the instrument’s previous owners. The antique violin’s history is documented by the dated original label on the inside of the body and a receipt issued by the Robert Knisch artisanal workshop for violin making in Vienna in 1937. With its warm, bright and mature sound, the violin is highly recommended: it has a sweet, gentle note in its upper registers. After having been carefully set up by the violin makers at our atelier, it is now ready to play.
