This violin is labeled and by Emilio Kusi Crabbé, Brussels 2019.
Emilio Crabbé discovered his passion for violin making at the age of 14 when visiting the workshop of Thomas Bertrand in Brussels. He continued his learning and graduated with distinction from the Newark School of Violin Making in England. While working as an assistant to Stephen von Baehr in Paris, he concentrated on copying the great Cremonese instruments. Among his accolades is a certificate of merit from the Violin Society of America for a violin on which he and Stephen collaborated. In 2019, Emilio set out on his own and now shares a workshop in Taiwan with his wife, Chiling Chen, who is also a violin maker. We are glad to offer this fine violin for trial via shipping or in our showroom.
