A cello by

Matteo Goffriller

Venice, c. 1723, “Piatti”

Once owned by the great 19th-century cellist Alfredo Piatti (1822-1901), this Goffriller cello has the rich, dark quality of sound most associated with the best work of this maker. The back is made from two pieces of slab-cut beech. With a lovely deep red-brown varnish, the "Piatti" is in a well-restored state of preservation, making it much more affordable than other Goffrillers.
