Abstract:

"This book presents a unique view of the work of the great Italian violin-makers from the 17th to the 19th centuries, based on the collection of The Royal Academy Of Music in London. The Academy, founded in 1822, is Britain's senior conservatoire and one of the oldest institutions in the world for advanced musical training." "Included here are masterpieces by Amati, Cappa, Celoniato, Ceruti, Dalla Costa, Deconet, Gagliano, Grancino, Guadagnini, Guarneri, Landolfi, Pressenda, Rota, Rugeri, Seraphin, Sorsana, Stradivari, Tecchler and Testore. This revised edition has an updated descriptive text, features 15 extra entries, devotes at least two full-colour spreads to each instrument, and is supplemented with a new dendrochronological study. Specially-commissioned photography displays each violin, viola or cello with large, high-quality illustrations, revealing details of these instruments as never before."--Jacket.
