A violin by Vincenzo Rugeri

Cremona, circa 1700

Vincenzo Rugeri was a pupil of his father Francesco, whom he assisted from the late 1670s. When his father died in 1698, Vincenzo took over the family workshop, and his work moved away from the Amatese influence which had been the bedrock of his father’s work, taking on some elements of Stradivari’s style. This is evident in the low and flat arch of this violin, which places it firmly in the 18th century tradition, and the efficacy of the arching is matched by the dramatic maple of its back.

This violin was previously in the possession of the Swiss violinist and teacher Aida Stucki, whose most famous pupil was Anne-Sophie Mutter.
