borman violin



This violin was made by Terry Borman in 2005 for Kyung-Wha Chung, and is a bench copy (intended to be as exact a copy as possible) of her Guarneri del Gesu violin made in 1735. This instrument is slightly more "antiqued" than is my norm as the original has been a very hard working violin its entire life and therefore has more wear and tear than an instrument that has been owned by "collectors" for extensive periods of time. When making violins, my typical working of the varnish is intended to simulate the look of a violin that is 150 years old but in "museum" condition, i.e. slightly less "worked" than this particular example.

This violin was made in 2004 for a member of a well known quartet.

The photographs were taken in 2006 after the instrument had seen two years of playing.

 

This violin was made in 1999 for Jaime Laredo and was the third instrument he commissioned from me. He had previously acquired a violin and a viola. Along with his wife Sharon Robinson's Borman cello, they make up the first complete Borman Quartet.

Jaime Laredo has graciously agreed to allow me to post portions of his recording of the Shostakovitch "Sonata for Viola and Piano Op. 147" . This was recorded using his Borman viola with dimensions of 15 7/8".
