The 1690 “Tuscan” Stradivari violin in the Accademia di Santa Cecilia

Treasures of Italian Violin Making, Vol. II
published by Edizioni Scrollavezza & Zanrè and Jan Röhrmann, 2017

 

„…an inspiration, in fact. It is the closest any of us will get to looking over the maestro´s shoulder on a Cremonese morning in 1690.“ (John Dilworth, The Strad Magazine, May 2018)

„A remarkable instrument, one of the finest examples of Stradivari’s work, probably unique in the preservation […] it enables us to stand, in imagination, as contemporaries of the great master, and to see and handle a violin just as it left his workshop.” ( W. E. Hill & Sons, The “Tuscan”, London 1891)
