On 1 January 2010, Klaus Ludwig Clement will open a new master workshop in the music city of Leipzig. Under the umbrella of the Friedrich Hofmeister Musikverlag, founded in 1807, he now works together with his wife Stefanie Eva Clement.
In addition to his reputation as a violin maker, Klaus Ludwig Clement is also internationally known for numerous lectures on violin making as well as on his specialty – historical lacquer formulations. He draws on his knowledge and experience from the study of natural sciences on material properties and acoustics, from the analysis of historical techniques and methods, and especially from the study of historical instruments of all provencies. All this is reflected in the construction of his instruments. The exploration of the visual arts helps him to find his own style.
