Cello Guarneri 1692

A new masterpiece at the Violin's Museum

From Wednesday the 22nd of July it is possible to admire at the Violin's Museum a new masterpiece, the cello Guarneri 1692. This instrument was made by Giuseppe Guarneri filius Andreae but it contains inside of it an original label which quotes the father. It is usually stored in the Music School “Giuseppe Verdi” in Milan, in the framework of a project of cooperation between the two institutions.
The cello Guarneri 1692 will stay in Cremona till December 2020.

THE INSTRUMENT
Sub disciplina
Andreae Guarneri
Giuseppe Guarneri filius Andreae
Cello, 1692

This instrument was made by Giuseppe Guarneri filius Andreae and it is described in this way by de’ Guarinoni: “Great red varnish, like the blood of a dragon: the instrument demonstrates the great skills of the maker. The shape is magnificent and the scroll is wonderful even if it is painted with a different varnish”.
Inside this interesting cello there is an original label with the sentence “Sub disciplina Andreae Guarnerij in eius Officina sub titulo S.Teresiae, Cremonae 1692 ”. In 1692 Pietro had already left his father's house, only Giuseppe had stayed there to support his father's work. And the style of Giuseppe characterizes this cello.

The spruce used for the sounding board is quite good, the bottom and the ribs are made in willow, which was quite used in the Po valley but which was considered a poor material in comparison with the well-flamed spruce.
The head of the cello is not the original one and it was made by Ferdinando Garimberti: it was substituted in the second quarter of the 20th century. The instrument was restored by the Music School in 2004.
