Amati Cello. Antonio & Hieronymus Amati, Cremona, c.1616 CI016

An interpretation
The Brothers Amati are considered to be two of Cremona’s finest makers. Their work closely follows that of their father Andrea, the founder of the Cremona school. Their violins are typically femininely small while their tenor and bass instruments are more robust both in size and tone.

The cello is typical of the Brothers Amati’s work, although like all of their cellos it has been reduced in size.
