Italian violin, Officina Claudio Monteverde, Cremona (certificate Christian Lijsen)

This bordeaux-red Italian violin with strong, bright, somewhat sweet sound was made in the 1920's in the "Officina Claudio Monteverde" led by Aristide Cavalli in Cremona. It bears the original label used by the "Officina Claudio Monteverde", signed in ink. The rather broad violin has a low table, and its outstanding quality is clearly evident in the way the purfling was executed with elegance as well as in the deep carving of the scroll. The mild flames of the maple on the two-piece back and the top-quality spruce of the top are well-chosen tone woods coated with a thick layer of a deep red oil varnish. We received it with some uncritical repairs and with some vivid traces of use which imply that there were experienced musicians amongst its previous owners. This would be no surprise in light of this Italian violin's bright, expressive sound which gives demanding soloists a broad palette of multi-facetted interpretations. This beautiful Italian violin with an outstanding sound is now ready to play after a great deal of care was invested in setting it up at our restoration atelier. The price includes a certificate of authenticity by authorized expert Christian Lijsen, Munich.
