Historically interesting French violin, by René Bazin, Lille 1936

After years of working independently in Mirecourt and Lille, in 1942 René Bazin (1906 - 1982) was placed in the Stuttgart atelier of Fridolin Hamma as a prisoner of world war II. Following the end of the war, he remained there as an employee until 1948. After a short intermezzo in Suresnes near Paris, he settled in Munich in 1952, where he lived as a German citizen until his death – a European biography that was not at all common during those years. This exceptionally beautiful René Bazin violin was made only a few years before the war in 1936 in Lille, it is a very successful piece, that shows the strong personal influence on a Stradivarius model. Well selected tonewoods were used to build the instrument, regular medium grained spruce for the top and deeply flamed maple for the back and ribs. Soft flutings, accentuated, rounded edges and a rich orange-brown oil varnish determine the character of this rare René Bazin violin that bears a handwritten label dated 1936. We offer this recommendable violin with some optical flaws in very good condition, ready to play after a complete set up by our luthiers. The mature, clear and precise sound of this violin is very recommendable, noble and of refined character.
