Christoph Götting, contemporary elite master violin

This fine contemporary violin was crafted by the Wiesbaden-based luthier Christoph Götting, and it is a magnum opus in contemporary violin making. It shows its master's virtuoso self-confidence as well as his fluency in historic Italian craftsman traditions. By patterning the body after Antonio Stradivari's classic "P form," Christoph Götting is honouring the instruments of the early "golden period" of the famous Cremonese master. At the same time, he added his own flourishes and created his own interpretation, integrating exquisitely delicate musical references inspired by the Amati family. These touches can be seen in the contours of the table. A reflection of the magnificent quality of his artisanry, Christoph ötting has produced an instrument which has both the perfect character for chamber music as well as the strength and resonance needed for soloist performance. Putting such sophisticated concepts into practice was a task for which Christoph Götting (who was born in 1948) not only made full use of his nearly 50 years of professional experience. He also drew upon the 21 years he spent at J. & A. Beare in London, in part in a managerial capacity. Evidence of his great life's work studying violin varnish can also be seen here: he followed the template of the Amati's significant accomplishments in this field while also creating an expressive distinction through his delicate oil varnish. The varnish brings to full fruition the beauty of the dynamic flames in the premium sycamore maple for the back and ribs. It also highlights the subtle grain of the spruce used for the top. Christoph Götting's dated original label confirms the authenticity and provenance of this young work created in 2014. It is an excellent violin which we warmly recommend to sophisticated professional musicians with versatile musical interests. Its large, clear and radiant sound will open many doors in terms of musical interpretation.
