Mira Gruszow & Gideon Baumblatt

Instruments: Makers | Violin Makers

After their studies in Cremona and Mittenwald, Mira Gruszow and Gideon Baumblatt worked for different workshops in Germany, London and Canada.Today they devote themselves entirely to new making in their two ateliers in Berlin and Werder. Their instruments have been recognised with numerous international awards. “For a while we made instruments next to each other, learned from one another’s particular experiences and soon realized how complementary our skills were. We started developing a way of working together on each instrument that leaves our workshop. Every instruments is planned by two minds and crafted by four hands. The infinite complexity of the sound and the possibilities to sculpt it by changing any given detail in the construction process is a great source of motivation. We always aim as high as we possibly can, as we have learned that the best musicians often are the best partners to work with. To us the finished instrument represents a starting point that we enjoy to develop together  with its player.”
