A cello by Giuseppe Guarneri 'filius' Andreæ

Cremona, 1713

Giuseppe Guarneri, the son of Andrea, lived a long and productive life, somewhat under the shadow of his predecessors and contemporaries, Nicolo Amati and Antonio Stradivari, through a relatively turbulent time in Cremonese lutherie. History, however, would judge him as one of Cremona's most highly regarded makers of his time. The model for this cello is beautifully proportioned, with generous widths across the bouts, reminiscent of the shape of a violin. Although the head of the cello is a later replacement, the instrument is otherwise a very fine and unaltered example of this great cello maker’s work. This instrument responds very easily and has a warm and colourful sound across all registers. It was previously loaned to a young soloist who launched her career in many of the great European concert halls on this instrument.
