Eckart Runge plays a beautiful cello made by the brothers Hieronymus and Antonio Amati in Cremona in 1595, a generous loan of ‘Meritosit Vienna’. This instrument was also played by famous Swiss cellist Thomas Demenga for many years. The Amati brothers were the founders of the great Cremones school for violin making, a tradition later made legendary by their pupils Stradivarius and Guarneri.
