"I commissioned Frédéric to produce my violin after having admired and tested his “Ivan” and another more "normal" one, when he asked me which acoustic characteristics I wanted I replied that I would like an instrument with a powerful, pasty and dark fourth string and the first clear one , luminous and penetrating, practically describing the qualities of the violin I was playing at that time, Santo Serafino, Venice 1760, on loan.
Frédéric's work was wonderful, he gave me great satisfaction, the violin is very beautiful and still makes me want to play.
In addition to the technical qualities, I appreciate Frédéric's free personality, seriousness and originality in Frédéric's lutherie"
