The work of the Rezvani brothers is very clean and elegant, with characteristics of the modern German school, along with a clear personal touch. Based out of Los Angeles, these two experienced makers produce consistently brilliant and full bodied instruments which respond quickly to the bow.
This particularly violin, finished in 2015, has a clear and transparent golden-brown hued varnish, with very slight antiquing. As is common with their instruments, it has a soloist tone quality, brilliant, and rich, with tons of overtones present. This powerful violin will make someone very happy, very soon.
from the makers:
The Rezvani brothers built an impressive reputation in Iran as master luthiers before migrating to the United States in 2010 to continue their work handcrafting the finest concert violins, violas, and cellos… More than 500 Rezvani masterpieces are now owned by world renowned soloists and orchestral musicians, who are members of music conservatories, teachers in universities and performers in international philharmonic and symphony orchestras. From their shop in Westlake Village, CA, Saeid and Shahram Rezvani serve an ever growing demand for their precisely designed and laboriously assembled violins, violas and cellos. They also pour the same passion into repairing string instruments and bows, and working with local artists to create custom, one-of-a kind instruments of the highest calibre.
