WORKED OVER AND IMPROVED Mario Gadda, Italian violin made in 1984

This modern Italian violin is a late work by Mario Gadda in Mantova which was made in 1984, as confirmed by the maker's certificate, the original dated and signed label and several brandstamps. The appearance of the instrument is determined by slim and elegant model after Oreste Candi. This work is like the other Mario Gadda violin in our catalog heir of the Mantuan school, which extended from Mario Gadda's father, Gaetano Gadda, to his instructor Scarampella, and even back to Tommaso Balestrieri. Liberally applied bright orange-brown varnish points towards those great predecessors and gives the violin its striking appearance. If there is one attribute that defines Italian violins, it is their distinctive sound, which is wonderfully developed in this mature violin. Its voice is shining and strong, radiant, bright, rich in overtones and a singing character, an extremely powerful and carrying instrument for soloists that we can recommend without reserve. We offer this 1984 Mario Gadda violin in perfectly preserved condition. It has been thoroughly worked over and set up by our luthiers and is, as all Corilon instruments, offered ready to play. The original maker's certificate by Mario Gadda is included in the price.
