Aegidius Sebastian Klotz 1774

Aegidius Sebastian Klotz 1774

This violin, which maintains its original varnish is a remarkable example of the craftmanship from this period. The Klotz family have been widely praised for producing some of the finest instruments from Mittenwald, Germany. Aegidius Klotz was the grandson of Matthias Klotz I, who founded the Mittenwald School and possibly learnt from Jacob Stainer and the son of Sebastian Klotz I - another fine maker in his own right. A rare violin of this age is perfect for baroque music or ensemble playing, and it is even believed that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself composed and played on a violin made by Aegidius Sebastian Klotz.
