Steffen Nowak’s violin is an interpretation of Carlo Bergonzi’s work taking it’s inspiration from work of the late 1730s. Bergonzi’s own work is incredibly experimental and varied within the context of classical Cremonese making of the Golden period. Steffen’s violin fits convincingly within the expected scope of this work. Very tastefully varnished, a warm and brilliant sounding instrument.
A good contemporary violin by Steffen Nowak, Bristol, 2014 after Carlo Bergonzi
