A superb violin by Giuseppe Guarneri 'filius Andreae' Cremona, c. 1717

We are very pleased to offer this truly extraordinary violin by the celebrated maker, Giuseppe Guarneri ‘filius Andreae’. This instrument was made during the time when Giuseppe’s younger son, the great Guarneri del Gesù, was fully engaged in the family workshop, and instruments made by Giuseppe during this period share many characteristics with del Gesù’s work. This is especially the case with this robust violin. There is something so special about a Cremonese instrument of this caliber built on a large pattern. The power and richness of sound make this a perfect instrument for any soloist. This violin indeed has a history of performances on the world’s greatest concert stages.
