Handcrafted to carry on the legacy of Andrea Fiori himself, this cello is powerful enough to sing in solo work, yet still round enough to blend perfectly in an orchestral setting. The A string is direct and clear, especially in the upper register-complemented by a stark, forward D string. The lower register is resonant and round, creating a lovely transition from the focused upper register. Finished in hand crafted Cremonese-style varnish, antiquated precisely to match the details of the golden age instruments. This instrument would be ideal for the most demanding player who requires maximum projection, particularly in concert settings. Signed certificate of authenticity provided.
