About the Scott Cao 1735 LaFont


The earliest known owner of this violin was the French violinist and composer Charles Philippe Lafont. This violin was made in one of del Gesu's most prolific years, when his output also included the "King" D'Egville" and Plowden violins. A typical example of violins of that period, the Lafont possesses a powerful,resonant and penentrating sound quality, which its various owners have capitalized on over the years.
