JORG WUNDERLICH MASTER VIOLIN MAKER

I am descended from an old Vogtland-based family which was engaged in instrument making for several generations. As a little boy, I watched my grand-grandfather in his workshop, being fascinated by his work as bow maker. After finishing school, I started my training as violin maker with master violin maker Eckhart Richter in Markneukirchen.

Apart of a few others, Eckhart Richter could lead his workshop independently, which was rather special in the time of the German Democratic Republic. Therefore I was lucky not only to learn the construction of new violins, but also get to know the very best instruments of Stradivari, Guaneri or Amati and furthermore, techniques to repair such old, high level instruments. Thus, my fascination and passion for old master violins especially the old wood, their specific build, varnishes and old varnish recipes and their application grew early.
