More about violin-maker Dmitry Badiarov


… a wonderful violin maker, true artist, always in research, never blindly copying anything but following his highest aesthetic standards based on profound knowledge of the whole culture and spirit of the baroque period (among others). The fantastic Violoncello da Spalla, reborn by him is a great instrumental challenge and musical inspiration for me. Many Thanks, again!– Sergey Malov, Russia/Germany, 03.10.2011
