Milanese violin at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Music.

Posted on | September 26, 2013 | 1 Comment|

Today the Ottawa Citizen newspaper published an article on a violin made in Milan during the 18th Century by Carlo Fernando Landolfi. It was generously left to the University of Ottawa by the late Sally Benson (violinist with the NACO). The violin is now being used by the professor of violin, Yehonatan Berick, at the Faculty of Music.

In 2009 I restored the scroll of this violin as part of our work to maintain the violin for Sally Benson. Some old repairs on the sides of the scroll had begun to come apart. I replaced the previous inlay repair work with new wood. (for details on the repair click here)

I’m pleased to see this fine sounding violin being played again and I’m sure it well give great service to Yehonatan Berick.
