This interesting modern Italian violin was made by Romedio Muncher in Cremona, and its powerful sound has the typically radiant note that is common to Cremonese violins of the early 20th century. The interesting slim model with broad shoulders, solidly crafted beesting corners and a well-rounded table is indicative of the thoroughly considered craftsmanship that was typical in Muncher's circles. It is no contradiction in terms to note that Munchers ’s philosophy entailed a close and thoughtful look back at the great classics of Italian violin making. An aesthetic echo of earlier traditions can be seen in this Italian violin’s full and indubitably Italian scroll. The instrument’s sophisticated and luminous reddish-brown varnish radiates a sense of youthful freshness. After having carefully set up this perfectly preserved Italian violin at our specialist atelier for restoration, it is now ready to play, and we warmly recommend it because of its bright sound and its bright, exceptionally radiant character.
