Check out Art and Seek – Emmanual Borok talks about and plays a violin made by Heironimus Amati – one of Andreas Amati’s two sons – in 1608. The violin shows a great patina of age, but more importantly, it has a wonderfully even sound – not as harsh as a Stradivarius, and not as deep as a Guernarius. This Amati violin has seen a lot of history – Shakespeare was alive when this instrument had been made.

Enjoy the video and the sound of that amazing instrument
