Wednesdy, November 30th 2016



The violin of Matteo Fedeli was built by Antonio Stradivari in 1726. The tool presents the fund in two pieces of maple with a golden vein that gives shine and depth to curl. The size of this instrument are generous enough to include this copy in a small circle of five / six violins called “Grand Stradivarius” and produced by Stradivari probably on commission for a few artists whose need was to search for a more spacious sound, sweet and powerful than the models built on the traditional form. Arching of the board and the fund are clear and full as well as important is the height of the bands. The instrument was built a year later than the famous “Da Vinci” with which it shares the beauty of the wood. Restoration work mainly involved the table and the bottom of the violin but fortunately did not affect on the characteristics and tonal sound of the violin. The paint is still present in good quantity, it is gold-orange-brown. The label is original. Over the years the instrument has been certified by prestigious and renowned families of luthiers including Hill & Sons and Lyon & Healy. And ‘it belonged, in the early’ 900, the famous Austrian violinist Fritz Kreisler and Pablo de Sarasate has repeatedly praised the magnificent sound quality.
