For those who want to know more – the history of the violin

The violin belongs to the family of string instruments whose modern members also include the cello, double bass and viola.

The modern violin is actually the last offshoot in the long evolution of string instruments whose variations have been used in India, the Middle East and across Europe.

The violin appears in illustrations and is mentioned in texts from the beginning of the 16th century in Brescia, today’s Italy. The recognizable figure that we inextricably link today with the appearance of the violin was shaped by the famous Cremona lottery player Andrea Amati.

His students founded real dynasties of violin builders, including Guarneri, Bergonzi and Ruggieri. However, by far the most famous representative of this school is without a doubt Antonio Stradivari, who during his lifetime composed over a hundred instruments that are estimated today in millions of euros.

After the Italian masters, there were minor changes in the design: Francois Turt perfected the modern bow at the end of the 18th century, and the neck of the violin was extended during the next century to increase the tonal range.

The violin (and bow) has come a long way from folk dances to the leading solo instrument, which they rightly called the “queen of instruments” because of its virtuosity and tonal splendor.

However, the evolution of the violin is not over yet: the sound of the electric violin can be heard more and more often, which enables an interesting combination of tradition and current musical effects. One thing is for sure – the story of the violin has not yet been told to the end, and you can become a part of that story.
