Scott Cao 1714 Vieuxtemps
Vieuxtemps played on this violin for over 15 years, and in his letter of 1878 he refers to it as his old friend and inseparable companion. Vieuxtemps also mentions that the violin helped him compose his D minor concerto (no.4, op.31) which was published around 1850. It is highly likely that he would have given the premiere of his 4th and 5th concertos, which date from 1850 and 1861 on this violin. The Vieuxtemps possesses an extraordinary tone, characteristic of Guarneri del Gesu violins. Somewhat darker than a typical Stardivari, its sound is rich and haunting."
