The uncompromising quality in every aspect of violin making made me passionate about the work of the Florian Leonhard Fine Violins workshop.
It is this uncompromising knowledge, sensitivity and love for beautiful tone that made me decide to purchase my instrument, a Stradivari copy, from this outstanding workshop. After each performance I make, solo, recital or chamber music, the audiences ask me: ‘Are you playing on an Italian instrument?’ They are completely astonished when they learn that it is a modern instrument with an Old Italian sound!”
