Philipp Augustin violin for Augustin Hadelich

Philipp Augustin violin for Julia Fischer

Unexpected timbre

 

The individual idea of the timbre is where it all begins. This is my inspiration as I craft each detail, from the choice of wood to the finest adjustments to the finished instrument. Starting out with an idea of the tone colour is enough to let you rediscover the timbre months later in the finished instrument. A good timbre is always a source of inspiration – both for the musician and for the audience. The instrument must enchant, prompt new ideas, motivate and challenge. Good violins speak to the soul. They move something deep within. They unleash emotions. They have an unexpected quality. Only a violin which inspires can release a musician’s full musical potential.
