Andrea Cortese, Genova 1925

A underated maker but one of the greats of the Genoa school. In this violin one can see the linage from Cesare Candi (his teacher) and the similarities with Giuseppe Lecchi.

The soft lightly crazed varnish of ‘Genoa Orange Brown’ has a depth and transparency. The modelling is truly dignified and the making precise.

From Andrea Cortese, they don’t come much better
