Nicholas Frirsz Violin, 2013

This gorgeous violin from 2013 is by Nicholas Frirsz is a masterpiece and an exceptional example of the master’s later and recent work. A personal model, it has elements reminiscent of G.B. Guadagnini. Featuring a tightly flamed maple back, it is beautifully antiqued and has several unique markings in the wood than lend a slightly untamed feel to the instrument. The scroll goes along well with the wild feel, as it is a unique pattern with half a turn less than standard on the cupola. Tonally, this is a soloist’s instrument, with a very mellow, sweet and smooth timbre.
