Italian violins enjoy an outstanding reputation in the music world and are widely regarded as the ultimate in virtuoso artisanry and excellent acoustic properties. And this belief not only applies solely to the masterpieces of the “golden age” of Cremona in which Antonio Stradivari, Nicolò Amati and Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù brought the modern violin model to the heights which to this day serve as the internationally acknowledged and unsurpassed standard of artisanry. It is their accomplishments and the craft tradition of Italian lutes and violins dating far back to the late Middle Ages which even allowed the Cremonese violin makers to achieve what they did, and over the centuries their traditions assumed the nature of a benchmark standard that served as a point of reference, even for the characteristic styles of violin making traditions in other countries. For example, Italy served as an indispensable source of both knowledge and inspiration as well as premium-quality materials for the work of such masters as Tyrolean Jakob Stainer, whose instruments were more popular than the Italian classics up until the early 19th century. In the 20th century, a new circle of excellent masters formed on the fringes of the violin making school in Cremona. Yet the major role of this historic venue should not detract from the virtues of other regional Italian violin making traditions that also featured perfectly crafted and distinctive pieces which are worthy heirs of Amati, Stradivari and Guarneri – and continually re-interpret the Italian violin anew.
