Johannes Hjorth’s son, Emil Hjorth (1840-1920), was educated in his father’s workshop. He then travelled to Vienna where he worked for Gabriel Lembock in 1863-64 before continuing to Paris where he worked for Bernardel père. He was strongly influenced by the French school of violin building.This violin woods are further accentuated by the rich orange-reddish oil varnish which has developed charming crackling at certain sites. After having been carefully set up and made ready to play by the specialists at our workshop, this well-preserved violin can be warmly recommended with its bright and radiant sound full of timbre that opens up a broad range of musical options – including authentic interpretations of the music of the time it hails from.
