Baryton


after J. J. Stadlmann, Vienna 1750, Esterhazy’s Baryton

As the model for my instrument I use the baryton made by Johann Joseph Stadlmann in 1750 for Prince Esterhazy. The highly decorated original is on display in Budapest. The back, for instance, is made from three separate pieces joined in a wavy line.

7 playing strings, 10 metal strings.

Body length 60.5 cm, string length ca. 63,5 cm.

'It is my great pleasure to play a baryton made by Henner Harders. This instrument speaks very light and brisk, has a noble sound and a good characteristic resonance. Perfection and accuracy of carvings - 'Real viols maker’s masterpiece' - this is not only my opinion, but also that of many musicians in Poland'.
