Toronto-born Neumann was drawn to Cremona by the story his German grandfather shared with him when he was a boy, of visiting the town where Stradivari created his magnificent instruments. After starting a physiology degree at McGill University, Neumann transferred to Concordia University to study music and violin. In 1982, he travelled to Cremona to explore making instruments.


Canadian violin maker makes his mark in the Italian town where the instrument was invented

Bernard Neumann is considered one of the world's top violin makers and restorers.

It's been four decades since Bernard Neumann left Montreal for Cremona, Italy, to study violin making. The now-renowned luthier, as a violin-maker is called, still draws daily inspiration from his walks along the northern Italian town's patterned cobblestone streets and curved Romanesque doorways and porticos.

"Just look at the beauty of that," he said, pausing to marvel at the Corinthian capital of one of the columns supporting the loggia running along the front of Cremona's soaring brick and marble cathedral.

"This kind of contact with musicians, Neumann says, is vital to help him create a violin, viola or cello that best channels and reflects the voice of a particular musician."

OUTSTANDING! thumbsup
