Like other well-made copies of Guarneri del Gesu’s Il Cannone violin of 1742, the tone of this striking violin has a slightly explosive quality, as though each note were a thoroughbred racing horse eager to burst out of the gates. The oil-based varnish is a rich, golden red-brown, which is naturally developing the typical wear patterns so often imitated in deliberately antiqued instruments. Played for many years by a top professional musician, the violin comes with a personal history that is both intriguing and mystifying.
