Very privileged to meet Maestro Christophe Landon in Singapore on this weekend of 21st – 22nd October 2017, who made a quick stopover from the Shanghai music fair.
Mr Landon is an award winning violin maker, expert restorer, and world renowned dealer in rare music instruments and bows. With 42 years of experience handcrafting violins, his workshops are located in New York (Near Lincoln Centre), Paris, Berlin, Shanghai, Seoul.
It was quite exciting to witness Mr Landon tweak and adjust the many fine, violin and bows belonging to members of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. Under his expert hands, the music instruments improve in character, tone and playability.
We also had the wonderful opportunity to play on the collection of rare violins Mr Landon brought to Singapore. These include works from G.B. Guadanini (widely regarded as the greatest violin maker of the second half of the 18th century), Giulio Degani (1875-1959), copies of Guanerius and Montagana by Christophe Landon. In many people’s opinion, the Matteo Gorfriller (1659-1742) is the best sounding instrument in the collection.
