About This Item

A beautiful cello by Cremona master Giorgio Grisales, based on a 1972 model by Milanese maker Ferdinando Garimberti. Powerful, brilliant and agile, with superb projection, this cello is also perfectly balanced tonally, suitable for a wide variety of performances, from solo to chamber work. The back is of three pieces of highly figured maple, one large and two small. The top is two pieces of straight grained spruce of medium width, widening slightly at the flanks. Varnish is orange-red over a golden ground and is highly polished.

Giorgio Grisales
Colombian born Giorgio Grisales is a graduate of the illustrious "International School of Violinmaking" in Cremona, Italy. He furthered his training in Milan at the "Civic School of Violinmaking", where he focused on the art of instrument restoration. He established his Cremona workshop over 30 years ago, where he has since been joined by his two sons, Ricardo and Andrea.

Giorgio Grisales instruments reflect his training in traditional Cremonese violin making, his focus on the finest aged woods, his respect for the work of the great Cremonese masters, and his meticulous techniques, workmanship and varnishing. This much is obvious. But well beyond these important basics is the approach that Grisales takes with each instrument he makes: In his careful copying of history's greatest instruments, Grisales strives to understand the spirit of the master, which is the foundation of the instrument, long before gouge contacts wood. His instruments have been consistently sought after because he has been able to capture this essence in his work. That is the basis of his well-deserved international reputation.
