Handsome violin made in 2017 by the Cremona-based and trained violin maker Felix Daniel Rotaru. The violin is inspired after Antonio Stradivari’s golden period style and is based on the Stradivari “G” pattern. The violin is covered with an outstanding warm brown oil varnish, laid over a golden-amber ground. The Carpathian maple back, ribs and head display spectacularly deep and rich flames of medium width. The top is made of old italian spruce from Val di Fiemme, the historical forest that supplied Antonio Stradivari with tone wood, 300 years ago. The violin has identical measurements with the original.
Well-known in Europe for his very high acoustical level of his violins, Felix Rotaru has obtained with this instrument the cherished warm, noble and ”silvery” stradivarian color of sound that builds elegantly from lowest to highest registers; the instrument has impeccable projection of sound that makes even the lowest pianissimo to be very well heard in large halls. From a brilliant, solistic, rich and perfectly focused E to the warm and solid G, the violin builds a well-balanced, complete and consistent sound. This violin is capable of all the means of expression needed by a top violinist with the highest expectations of function, potential and beauty of sound.
Felix Rotaru would be more than happy to demonstrate the acoustical capabilities of all his violins to demanding musicians located far away or overseas via video-call. Trained also as a classical violinist, he can play several key excepts form the established violin repertoire in order for you to judge the sound of his violins. Against technical limits that video-calls might have, one can still hear the sound and have a consistent idea about the acoustical qualities of the violin in discussion.
