Violin by Giovanni Battista Virzi
New York, 1937
Professional musicians have esteemed Virzi’s instruments for their large dark tone with depth and eveness at every dynamic level and register. Virzi is also admired for his selection of the highest quality aged woods.
This example displays Virzis own special formula of red-yellow varnish applied in a mottled, marbling manner on a one-piece back. The model is of a Ferdinand Galiano.
A fine and versatile instrument that would excel in a solo, orchestral or chamber setting.
