Jonathan runs our New York shop. Having studied the violin from an early age, Jonathan attended Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where he studied violin, baroque violin, and viola, and achieved a degree in Violin Performance. His tenure as Sales Manager for René A Morel provided the perfect education in the violin world. When Morel’s business closed in 2008, Jonathan formed his own consultancy, advising players, collectors, investors, and institutions, and completing numerous sales of top instruments in his own right. The opening of our New York shop in 2015 was a continuation of years already spent working together across the pond, and it is Jonathan's aim to proliferate the reach of Florian's expertise and to continue our track record of excellence working with musicians in the USA.
