Nicola & Giuseppe (Joseph) GAGLIANO

Year: 1723

After the dynasty was created by Alessandro Gagliano, Nicola and his brother Gennaro are the most prised members of the violin master’s family from Naples. The given instrument is a joint work by Nicola and his son Giuseppe. The violin is based on a Stradivarius model with a nice, soft, elegant sound as well as a bright and rich timbre characteristic of Italian instruments.

The violin has been certified by Vatelot–Rampal (Paris).
