We’ve just added a number of wonderful fine Italian violins to our collection, including one from the modern master violin maker, Andrea Schudtz.
Schudtz attended the International School of Violin Making in Cremona and moved to Italy. He studied with Mo. Conia, Mo. Negroni, Mo. G. Scolari and in 1995 graduated from the school. While attending the first year of the school he worked in Mo.Crillovi’s workshop.
Schudtz's instruments are made following the classical models of the Cremonese School, such as Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati with his own personal touch. His varnish is very thin and elastic and the choice of the wood is excellent.
These qualities make his instruments very successful with musicians all over the world. At present he lives and works in Cremona where has opened a workshop in the centre of town.
In this video, Bows for Strings violinist, Nick, plays a brief excerpt that highlights the tonal qualities of the violin.
