Talk:Giuseppe Guarneri

Typing "Guarnieri" redirects to Camargo Guarnieri. I'd have thought that Giuseppe is far more famous and influential in the world of music than Camargo is, so "Guarnieri" should redirect here, with a disambiguation link for Camargo. -- JackofOz (talk) 02:04, 14 June 2008 (UTC)


Ludwig van Beethoven is said to have owned a set of four excellent string instruments in his late year, made by a "Pater Zurneri". I would guess this refers to "Pater Guarneri del Gesu"? After Ludwig death the instruments were said to be of no commercial value, because he has carved his initials and a big Z into the back of the instruments. (talk) 19:11, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

      • This actually stems from an Ashens video (see Antonio Stradivari and Nicola Amati talk pages), of which it is a bad translation (re: Engrish) that appeared on the box of a toy violin he was reviewing. RAM (talk) 15:37, 19 February 2014 (UTC)

Article is missing some content[edit]

Dear wikipedians, I notice that most of the article is devoted to Giuseppe Guarnerius as a "violin maker", but otherwise doesn't include information about his life. I'll try to find some veirifable sources to further expand the biography; any help in locating sources (especially online) will be much appreciated. Regards, DPdH (talk) 06:42, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

Dates of works confusing[edit]

Shouldn't this statement: "Guarneri's career was short, from the late 1720s until his death in 1744"

Be amended because of this later statement: "Chang 1717, used by Sarah Chang. (This instrument is often questioned. But it has been verified that this is indeed a Guarneri del Gesù."?

Seems that we're losing a decade of the maker's work in the dates.

Should the violin catalogue be divided into periods?[edit]

From The Art of Violin Making by Chris Johnson and Roy Courtnall:

"The instruments are often divided into four distinct groups, with each period exhibiting particular characteristics, an indication that del Gesu was continually changing and developing his approach." (36)

The periods are defined as:

  • First period: 1726 - 1730
  • Second period: 1730 - 1735
  • Third period: 1735 - 1740
