The Frirsz music story

Nicholas Frirsz has devoted his life to the art of violin making. A fifth generation master violinmaker, Mr. Frirsz carries on the tradition of the oldest family of luthiers in the world. He began formal studies with his father at a very young age and developed a style that, while bearing a family resemblance and applying four generations of expertise, was clearly his own.
