Famous luthiers – 8

Samuel Zygmuntowicz

Samuel was born in 1956, in Philadelphia. He began working on musical instruments at the age of thirteen. His teachers were Peter Prier, Carl Becker and Rene Morel.

In 1985 Samuel moved to Brooklyn and he is usually remaking old classic instruments. Isaac Stern owned two instruments of Zygmuntowicz and at his death an auction was organised in order to sell them.

The prices paid for them broke all the records regarding a price paid for an instrument made by a living luthier.

Samuel s-a nascut in anul 1956, in Philadelphia. El a inceput sa realizeze instrumente muzicale la varsta de treisprezece ani. Profesorii sai au fost Peter Prier, Carl Becker si Rene Morel.

In 1985 Samuel s-a mutat in Brooklyn si de atunci de obicei reinterpreteaza instrumente clasice vechi. Isaac Stern a fost posesorul a doua instrumente semnate Zygmuntowicz si la moartea sa o licitatie a fost organizata pentru a le vinde.

Preturile platite au doborat orice record cu privire la cele oferite pana la acel moment pentru un instrument realizat de un lutier in viata.
