A Violin by Stefano Scarampella
It’s hard to imagine one of the greatest makers of the 20th century living in humble poverty creating some of the greatest violins in history, as was the case with Scarampella, who was largely self-taught with some assistance from his brother. This violin exhibits the maturity of the great maker, created at the peak of his making career, without losing one ounce of the robust spontaneity that Scarampella was famous for. Powerful, flat archings give this violin vibrant projection and depth of colour. In nearly flawless condition, this violin would make an excellent investment for anyone who claims it as theirs.
