Giorgio Grisales, modern Italian violin, Cremona, 1993 (certificate Giorgio Grisales)

Italian violins from Cremona have been popular around the globe for centuries, and rightly so, given the unmistakable excellent of their acoustic properties. However, as can be observed in other fields as well, this kind of long-term demand leads to faster and more streamlined forms of production and triggers efforts to focus only on the most essential features of the item in demand. And in the case of musical instruments, the most critical aspect is obviously the sound. Giorgio Grisales's workshop in Cremona created this violin in the wake of this idea. This original 1993 work here is a thoroughbred example of the Italian Cremonese violin making tradition – yet at the same time it shows that the Giorgio Grisales workshop drew their own conclusions about what was truly mattered in an instrument. The elegant aesthetic of the violin is typically Italian. The dark-red colored varnish is rich and beautiful in its transparency and depth of its colour, covering interestingly chosen tone woods such as the beautifully flamed sycamore maple of the two-piece back and the medium grained top. Beautiful, elegant, quick and technically perfectly functional work - Giorgio Grisales was willing to accept that such haphazardness can be at odds with the uniquely individual personality of a handmade violin, but ultimately his approach is borne out by the instrument's outstanding, voluminous sound which captures the gentle undertone of perfectly rendered Italian violins. This Girogio Grisales violin from Cremoma will win you over because both of its elegant beauty and most important character trait: its voice.
