An exceptional violin by Giovani Battista Guadagnini Milan, 1753

This fabulous violin encompasses everything you’d expect and hope for in an instrument made by the great, G.B. Guadagnini. It has a robust, soloistic projection from bottom to top.
Like a great chorus where each vocal register evokes its own unique color and timbre, each string delights with endless possibilities, yet all blend with one another for truly inspirational music making. Guadagnini managed to create instruments that are at the same time two-fisted powerhouses and silky smooth sweethearts and this violin is no exception.
