I now have the luxury of owning this beautiful replica of my beloved Matthias Albani violin to use in circumstances that may be too extreme for my own violin. This is a huge bonus for me and possibly for many professional violinists who potentially have their priceless violins out in extreme conditions. To have a spare violin of unique professional quality alongside my own violin on stage, for indoors AND outdoors, affords me peace of mind no matter what happens! I absolutely love playing my Máiréad “Matthias Albani” Viennese Elite Violin model with it’s deep tonal quality and projection. It is a perfect companion!”
