Bergonzi, Michelangelo Angelo

B. 1721, d. 1758, Cremona

Son of Carlo Bergonzi. Faced with increasing competition from growing numbers of violin makers throughout Europe, Michele Angelo Bergonzi made compromises in his technique which lead to a loss of quality in materials, workmanship and varnish compared to his Cremonese predecessors, which inevitably forced a further decline. A relatively short working life left only a small number of instruments which are tonally very fine, if lacking in finish.
