Violin by Dario Aguzzi, Milan, 2012

About Dario Aguzzi

Dario Aguzzi is a Milanese violin maker who began his career as a luthier in 1982. He is also an artist of great note: this is particularly evident in his very accomplished varnish.

About the violin

The violin was made in Milan in 2012 and is modelled after the instruments of Guarneri 'del Gesù'.

The back is two pieces of book-matched maple with ribs of similar wood. The scroll is of plainer maple and the front is two pieces of straight-grained spruce. The varnish is a warm golden-amber colour laid over a lighter golden ground.

The violin has a length of back of 352 mm.

How does it sound?

Wow, this is a loud and projecting violin! There is no getting away from it, this is a violin that demands to be heard.

I often think that this sort of violin is the perfect instrument to play things like the concertos by Mozart - whilst not obviously a Mozart instrument, the effortless projection and power mean that one can focus entirely on being graceful, beautiful and interesting without having to bother about trying to make sure the violin cuts through an orchestra.


The violin comes with the maker's certificate.
