Andrea Bento and Andrzej Bykowski
Christian Harvey posted a topic in The PegboxDoes anyone know anything about these two makers? I have a violin made by each of them on loan for a couple weeks and I can’t find anything about them other than the page on Terra Nova for the Bykowski. I’m especially interested about info on the Bento as it was made in 1905. According to the label in each violin the Bento was made in Italy and the Bykowski is Polish.
Has anyone heard how Cremona and other violin makers and dealers in Italy have been affected? With a death count over 10K, and the number of infections skyrocketing, it looks like Italy, and perhaps its luthier industry, will take a hammering. Though USA leads in number of cases, Italy's population is 1/6 the size of the US, and has 1/3 of the worlds's deaths (IIRC). Like I imagine most of you, I am very concerned. Haven't heard any news about this aspect. @Davide Sora, what say you? Also, Manu Dibango, a great African jazz artist died from Covid-19, and John Prine is not doing well... :-(
