What clients say about Rezvani Violins

Dear Rezvani Violins,

A few years ago, my son, Vincenzo, had given up playing violin. He thought he couldn’t play, and he wanted to stop taking lessons. But it was at a recital that I saw something in him, so I decided to make a change in teachers.

When Vincenzo started with his new teacher, the frustration on violin continued. He had a negative association with the violin. His teacher soon after put him on viola. It was a good fit, and he has been playing the viola for two and a half years now. Vincenzo has grown as a string player on the viola, and his confidence continues to grow. He loves the viola. But I didn’t want him to give up on the violin. I wanted him to play both, so he will develop as a more rounded string player.

Although I have no previous experience with classical string instruments, what I have learned is how inspirational a good instrument can be. So a few months ago, I took out a loan and bought Vincenzo a Rezvani violin. Within a few weeks, he was playing violin again and having fun! He told his teacher he wanted to refocus on the violin again. It was the beauty and responsiveness of his new Rezvani that inspired him! And at his last recital, the joy he had playing his violin was palpable.

I write to you with so much gratitude. I thank you for making such a beautiful and inspiring instrument, that he will be playing for the rest of his life!

Kindest regards,
Maija Calcagno

The Rezvani brothers are not only world class violin makers but also outstanding people. Their instruments sound antique and priceless and are incredibly comfortable and satisfying to play. The Rezvanis are very humble, dedicated and do everything they can to work with the customer. I absolutely love my violin. It is very powerful, silky, smooth, warm, and sounds better and better every month.

I have played on a Shahram and Saeid Rezvani violin for the duration of my professional career. I find that my instrument has a fine blend of projection, tone quality and responsiveness and recommend that anybody looking for a reasonably priced instrument consider trying a Rezvani brothers violin.

Shahram and Saeid Rezvani are marvelous luthiers. They breathe the air to make instruments and  it is as if their hearts and souls are in each and every violin and viola they create. I am the proud owner of two of their wonderful violins. With their instruments one can produce a deep, sweet and ringing tone. In addition their instruments are easy to play. I feel very privileged to personally know such artists.

In 2007 I bought my violin from you and when I purchased it you told me that I will realize how great the instrument truly is. I just wanted to tell you that last year I got accepted into the Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music in the Ukraine and I am continuing my studies of the violin here, so I wanted to thank you for the stellar violin you provided.

I have been playing on my Rezvani violin since November 2013, it is the best violin I’ve ever had. From the first moment I played it I felt that it has all of the warmth and colors that I search for. Recently I was selected to compete in the 2015 Singapore International Violin Competition using this violin. I am very happy to be able to play on such an amazing instrument.

I thoroughly enjoy playing my Rezvani violin after a day in the office. Your commitment to creating the best sounding instruments is unparalleled. Thank you, Shahram and Saeid.

Xiao-violinI have a 2002 Rezvani violin. I discovered it from my local violin shop, and I found out about and contacted the maker after searching the label on the internet. The Rezvani brothers kindly answered my questions about the type and age of the wood. Most importantly, this violin has a beautiful singing voice! The projection is amazing - both broad and sweet, and it has a great balance between brightness and depth across all four strings. it has brought much joy to my practicing in the short month I've owned it, and I'm continuing to improve my technique to bring out more of its potential.
