13 December - Violin Day
The modern violin has been around for roughly 500 years. A distinctive feature of a violin body is its hourglass-like shape and the arching of its top and back. The hourglass shape comprises two upper bouts, two lower bouts, and two concave C-bouts at the waist, providing clearance for the bow. Violins are made by 70 different pieces of wood put together to form the modern violin. Violins are typically comprised of spruce or maple wood.
The oldest existing violin, built by Andrea Amati. Compared to its ancestors, the violin is in a class by itself in terms of completeness. In addition, it was not improved gradually over time, but appeared in its current form suddenly around 1550.
The most expensive violin in the world was made by Giuseppe Guarneri in 1741 at $18 million.
