The attractive, golden-brown spirit-oil varnish of this beautiful viola by Ernst Heinrich Roth indicates its provenance from the well-known name impressively. The varnish covers premium tonewoods that feature exceptionally beautiful grain: medium grained spruce was chosen for the top, narrowly and strongly flamed maple for the two-piece back. This Ernst Heinrich Roth viola is a clear example of the visual and acustic quality of the Roth's craftsmanship, as it is demonstrated by the purfling that is laid in very close to the edges and by the soft fluting of top and back. This 1958 viola no. 1806 after Antonius Stradivarius 1724 was worked over in our atelier carefully and is offered in perfect condition, immediately ready to play and to unfold its bright, warm, radiant and highly resonant voice.
