Disclaimer Due to the nature of the acts in the show, changes in the cast may occur.In addition, the content and duration of the show may differ from time to time.Classical makers in 16th – 18th centuries understood proportions – like golden section, harmonic section, arithmetical section.They were geniuses in the way they used divine proportions, stylistic variations and shaped different characters of sound.The comfortable and good sounded Gasparo da Salò 1580 viola and and a Lorenzo Storioni 1787 viola gave me the inspiration to create this successful model.The two instruments' outline and design were almost identical, so I suppose, that the original mould or, it’s rough copy were passed by luthiers of generations to generations.There’s a comfortable three rooms spacious area for the workshop in this 220 years old house, near by the Catholic church, with a large 3600 square meters garden.I believe that art is not a mere interpretation of copying old artefacts but creating new ones that never exised before.
Studying violin making at Franz Liszt Academy of Music. Teaching violin making at Franz Liszt Academy of Music. Living and working in a peaceful countryside yet still close to the capital’s musical life, giving me the opportunity to dedicate my entire attention to the highest level of craftmanship.I was interested to examine some aesthetically pleasing plans where I found obvious harmonics in outlines.Mainly the 3/7 - 4/7 ratio was used to divide length into parts and determine the instruments widths. When I established Viktor Koos atelier in 2004, the „bespoke” violin making was the main profile of my enterprise.Although we try to keep this information up to date, we cannot guarantee its accuracy.Living and working in a countryside, gives me the opportunity to spend as much time in nature as possible.A return to our origins, KOOZA combines acrobatic performance and the art of clowning, while exploring fear, identity, recognition and power.
