” I became a luthier, because I wanted to remain a musician. Therefore, my main focus with respect to build violins is the investigation of production of sound. The search of original sound of bowed string instruments was a emphasis in the workshop where I was educated. With the first old violin in my hands and the questions: How did the builder live?, With which consciousness was this instrument built?, How did this instrument sound when it was new? the interst in the history of building violins was opened”
