One cannot deny the facts and the importance of Stradivari’s work!
Antonio Stradivari, born in 1644 in Cremona, is known as the greatest violin maker of all time. For 71 years, he crafted violins, violas, and cellos, a lengthy career for someone living in the 17th and 18th centuries. He understood how sound resonated, studied how precisely to shape wood, and searched for the elusive ingredients to encourage it to resonate freely.
Although he was not born into a family of violin makers, he began an apprenticeship with the notable citizen Nicola Amati in Cremona when he was young. The master developed his skills and deepened his knowledge, and then became the great luthier as we know him today. Now, in this blog, we want to bring you some of his best masterpieces that you need to know!
