Giuseppe Pedrazzini

The son of a cabinet maker, born in Pizzighettone, near Cremona, in 1879, Giuseppe Pedrazzini moved to Milan in 1903, where he came under the influence of Romeo Antoniazzi. He was established independently in 1906 and appointed luthier to the Conservatoire and Opera in Milan. His work is amongst the finest of the twentieth century Italian school, and he was awarded many prizes at exhibitions and competitions including Rome in 1920 and Cremona in 1937. Among his assistants were Ferdinando Garimberti, Piero Parravicini and his nephew Natale Novelli. The workshop was prolific and exported many instruments to London. The modelling is very refined, using the forms of all the classical Cremonese makers, and generally covered with a very subtle golden-orange or red varnish.

A violin by Giuseppe Pedrazzini

Milan, 1928

Considered to be one of the most important representatives of the modern Milanese School, Giuseppe Pedrazzini set up his business in Milan, after teaching mainly himself the craft of making violins. With some guidance from Romeo Antoniazzi he perfected his style and later went on to teach some of the outstanding makers of the next generation. The clear lines and careful workmanship of this instrument, based on a personal model, are typical of Pedrazzini’s work.

This violin has a clear and open sound with a range of bright overtones and fast response.
