An outstanding violin by LORENZO STORIONI Cremona, c. 1769

One of the leading Cremonese makers in the last half of the 18th century, Lorenzo Storioni was influenced by the work of the legendary Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù, but in the spirit of del Gesù, developed a unique style all his own. Instruments by Storioni are highly prized by professionals for their balanced proportions, tonal breadth, brilliance, and power. With its dependable, solid depth of quality in sound and genuine power, this violin encompasses all of the hallmarks of what makes Storioni great.
