Maker: Frederic Noharet
Model: Antonio Stradivari
Year of construction: 2004
An extremely fine violin, it 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. Made by Master Luthier Frederic Noharet in his workshop in Italy, it is wonderfully made and has a lovely sweet yet rich sound.
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.
