This violin was built in the year 2004 and for a long time was kept in the luthier’s workshop as a reference for the sound because of its beautiful qualities. This practice of retaining the best of his work as a comparative example is part of the maker’s working method. In 2017, the instrument was updated to include some minor improvements and a new varnish.
The model is inspired by Antonio Stradivari. Body length 355mm. Back made of two pieces. Comes with a certificate of authenticity
Frédéric Noharet studied at the International School of Violin Making in Cremona from 1978 under the guidance of masters Ezio Scarpini and Claudio Amighetti and graduated in 1982 under the guidance of Master Francesco Bissolotti.
He then moved to Parma in 1986 and undertook a professional career in violin making.
For the past 40 years, his focus has been the creation of instruments with the same personality and unique traits as those made by the great masters violinmakers of Italy’s golden age.
He was a member of the managing board of the Liuteria Parmense association until 2009 and since 2014, has been teaching at the Renato Scrollavezza International Violin making School.
