Jonathan Marolle examines a viola with a personal style
A few years ago, in the August 2018 issue, I wrote an In Focus article on an 1812 viola by Giuseppe Marconcini. Now I renew the family acquaintance with the viola shown here, made in 1777 by Giuseppe’s father Luigi Marconcini. The Marconcinis are not the best-known or most familiar exponents of the Ferrara school of making, but their instruments have a unique, very personal style that is clearly derived from the lutherie of that city.
