BERNHARD RITSCHARD Violin Maker // Website Relaunch

Bernhard Ritschard is a peripatetic, polyglot violin maker of the traditional Italian school. Born in Interlaken at the foot of the Swiss Alps, he learned his craft at the tradition-rich International School of Violin Making in Cremona, following in the footsteps of Antoni Stradivari.

In his northern German workshop near Lübeck, Bernhard creates and restores repertoire-specific instruments and bows for Early Music specialists and Music Schools from all over Europe.

A catalogue of these hand-built string instruments is now online at:
