Repair and Restoration Our expertise is in ensuring that everything we do is sympathetic to the sound quality of the instrument, we are used to dealing with old and antique instruments and our workmanship is to a very high standard. We have repaired instruments for professional classical orchestral players and for jazz musicians, folk musicians and session players. We understand that for a professional musician timing is crucial — we are based on the South Coast of England very near Brighton, which is about an hour from central London by train so very convenient for musicians who are part of a touring orchestra. If you are on tour and have an urgent repair we can often help — so please do get in touch. Repairing and re-hairing bows We restore and re-hair bows to a high standard using only the finest Mongolian horsehair. Double bass bows are usually re-haired with black hair which is more coarse for connecting with the larger strings.

About violinists, violins, and the violence that occurs between the two. Bach was 43 years old and would live another He has been credited with being the founder of the French violin school of violin playing — whatever that may be — though that distinction is debatable.

His teachers are unknown, although he may have studied with Leclair in Paris, having moved there with his father in Many of his contemporaries spoke of him as being the greatest living violinist. Judging from the Caprices, he may have been. His first important appearance in concert took place in He was 13 years old. For thirty years and perhaps more he was associated with the Concerts Spirituel, which he directed from to Mozart was in his late teens at the time.

The Concerts Spirituel was a French public concert series founded by musicians of the Paris Opera - it ran from until While he was esteemed as a great virtuoso Viotti called him the French Tartini , Gavinies rarely left Paris and eventually, at the age of 67, ended up teaching at the Paris Conservatory, alongside Pierre Rode, Rodolphe Kreutzer, and Pierre Baillot.

In he was actually named Director but did not take this office until Kreutzer dedicated his third violin concerto to Gavinies. Few have heard this concerto and it might not even be currently published.

An indication that he somewhat favored the Baroque style during the transition from Baroque to Classical is that many of his works for violin have accompaniments marked in figured bass only.

He composed — besides the Caprices - an opera, twelve violin sonatas , six violin concertos , six violin duos, and several other pieces which are now never played, except, perhaps, in France.

Gavinies died in Paris on September 9, , at age Mozart was dead by then but Paganini was only 18 years old. Posted by MUSE at.
