The “Il Cremonese- Ex Joachim” Stradivari of 1715 is now 300 years old. This violin was the prize possession of the famous violinist Joachim, before it was purchased by the City of Cremona in 1961, and has subsequently become the City’s symbol. It is now housed in the Museo del Violino in Cremona.
To celebrate this famous violin’s 300th Anniversary, we have commissioned a Single Limited Edition, of 10 replicas. Made by the master violin maker Xue Ping Hue of Beijing (2006 Certificate of Merit for Violin Tone at the VSA competition). Made with selected materials (the striking one piece back) and varnished to replicate the original, these violins are individually labelled and are accompanied by Signed and photographed Certificates of Authenticity.
The first five violins sold will be accompanied by a boxed Apprentice Edition violin- a 1/16 size ‘Mini Strad’.
