About This Item

This viola was made by Leo Aschauer especially for the great Philadelphia violin shop, William Moennig & Son, in 1962. Displaying excellent balance, with a clear, resonant and responsive tone. Confident, precise workmanship, with a pattern inspired by the model of Aegidius Kloz. One-piece maple back with narrow flame, cut on the quarter. The top is of straight-grained spruce of medium width grain. Varnish is red-orange over a golden ground. This viola can be considered a benchmark of the quality of Mittenwald violinmaking.

The connection between Aschauer and Moennig was far more than just a business relationship; William Moennig Jr., son of the founder, studied violinmaking in Mittenwald under Aschauer himself, who served as the director of the school for 37 years. In the years that followed, William Moennig & Son became known for importing the finest violin-family instruments the world had to offer, with Leo Auschaer’s at the top rank.
