Roberto Cavagnoli Maggini Viola

 

Atelier Puglisi now houses this unique and beautiful viola by Cremonese maker Roberto Cavagnoli. The viola demonstrates Roberto's skill as a luthier. It has been made with highly ornate purfling, in the Maggine style. It plays with great clarity and warmth of tone suited to the soloist, and at 16'' it is well proportioned to suit a range of players.

 

Cavagnoli graduated in 1993 at the International School of Violin Makers “Antonio Stradivari” in Cremona under the guidance of M° Giorgio Scolari displaying great talent for carving wood. After studying, he spent many years training in Angelo Sperzaga’s workshop, where he improved manual dexterity and style on classical Cremonese models with particular attention to brush painting.
Between 1998 and 2000, he worked in M° Barbara Piccinotti’s workshop. He took care of clean lines and he developed a personal style.
In 2001 he received an offer overseas. So, he went in Australia where he had the opportunity to work with M° Jams W. Robinson.
In 2003 he participated at 10th Cremona Triennal with a viola and cello and achieved excellent results.
In 2004 he won a Silver Medal for the cello tone at the V.S.A. Competition in Portland (Oregon) U.S.A.
In 2005 he participated at the Mittenwald Competition with a viola.
In 2006 he won the third prize with a cello at the XI° International competition “Triennale” in Cremona for the personalized work and for the excellent quality of sound. In the same year he participated in the Poznan Competition.
He is a member of the "Group of Professional Violin and Bow Makers", the Consurzium “A.Stradivari” of Cremona and V.S.A.
Today Roberto works in his own workshop in the centre of Cremona, via PECORARI 5, and he makes violins, violas and cellos, following the antique Cremonese tradition.

21st anniversary!2016
The month of July marks the 21st anniversary of the opening of my Showroom and Atelier in Hawthorn.
Time goes fast when your having fun! Times like this I reflect on one of my biggest inspirations. My Nonno Puglisi. A proud and hard-working fruiter, who understood the meaning of honest caring service. I just love this photo! Taken in 1966 i believe . I was just 1yo.
And I should mention that he was also an amazing fisherman! And could build anything he wanted.

Vienna Kontrabass (5 or 4 string)

A new and distinctive model from Benedict Puglisi's line of double basses. The instrument is an exact model by Lembock, accurately copied to the finest detail and tested against the original.Gabriel Lembock was a Hungarian born Viennese instrument maker famous for his accurate and impressive copies of Viennese double basses and fine Italian instruments. His instruments were praised for their fullness of tone coupled with responsiveness. This bass features gamba corners and a flat back, as well as custom authentic Viennese wooden pegs and fittings. This is an exceptionally versatile bass. It can be set up as a 5 string or 4 string orchestral bass, or in traditional Viennese tuning. The bass has a rich, dark tone well suited to orchestral playing. This is the perfect instrument for a professional looking for something versatile and suited to all circumstances.

International Jazz legend Christian McBride is now the proud owner of an original Benedict G. Puglisi Double Bass. This Bass landed in the USA early this month and is now being played by Christian. 

 

The 2012 Vincenzo Panormo carved back Bass was first trialed by Christian in Melbourne when he was a featured artist at the 2013 International Jazz festival.

 

It is truly an honour to have an original instrument with this amazing musician. We are sure that there are some amazing things to come from this relationship.
