Gaspar Borchardt

Violin Maker

Since 1983 I have been sharing our workshop with my wife and colleague Sibylle Fehr on piazza duomo , the central square in Cremona .

We are involved in an ongoing quest for the "paradoxical" sound : dark and mellow , yet radiating brightly; smooth response coupled with resistance; an instrument with it's own individual character , but always transparently open to the will of the performer .
