The Golden Age of Violin Making in Spain

Edited by Jorge Pozas

An exceptional collection of instruments made by the great José Contreras, also known as the “Spanish Stradivari”, and by other renowned Spanish 18th century makers such as Ortega father and son, the Guillamí family, Assensio and Salvador Bofill.

The book contains illustrations of 50 outstanding instruments, many of them never before shown publicly, expertly photographed by the professional photographer Jan Roehrmann.

Edited by the expert Jorge Pozas and published by Tritó Edicions, the book includes contributions by John Dilworth (on the description of the working methods of the Spanish School), Christophe Landon, Peter Ratcliff (dendrochronology) and Brigitte Brandmair (scientific varnish research).

Leading musicologists such as Cristina Bordas and Elsa Fonseca provide freshly researched, previously unpublished information from the Madrid Royal Palace Archive and Joan Pellisa offers an insight into the 18th century Barcelona guild of violin makers.
