Currently played by Antoine Tamestit, the ‘Mahler’ is one of only ten surviving violas by Antonio Stradivari – and the earliest known viola he made. The instrument bears all the hallmarks of the Cremonese master, as well as some intriguing details that suggest the 28-year-old luthier was already experimenting with the form.

‘The more one looks into the “Mahler”, the more facets and curiosities reveal themselves. Like all great artworks it is a product of its time and circumstances, as well as a result of experiments to bring something totally new and unique into the world’

– Jonathan Marolle in the July 2019 issue

The poster includes full measurements, outlines of the back, scroll side, f-holes, and front and back archings and rib outline.
