A strong and characteristic example of this maker’s work, with Amati-inspired arching. this cello is very powerful with a lot of depth.   The cello is responsive and has a wide range of tonal colours.  The upper register has an unusual degree of power and projection.  Some excerpts of Bach, Haydn and Brahms can be heard on the audio player below.
