Modeled after the famous violin that was coveted by Jascha Heifetz, arguably the best violinist of the 20th century, this violin demonstrates del Gesù’s movement away from the delicate Amati-like detail- ing found in his earlier instruments. Its austere detailing and broader outline indicate Guarnari’s movement towards the minimalist approach of his later works.
This unrefined style suggests that del Gesù knew exactly how to manipulate materials while crafting his instruments, so that he would not be held back by the details, which did not directly influence creating impeccable sound.
