  • Paganini owned several fine instruments, but his favorite, and the one on which he played for most of his career, was made by Guarneri, in 1743. Paganini endearingly referred to it as his “cannon violin,” and the nickname has stuck. It is Il CannoneGuarnerius, and is housed in the town hall of Genoa, Italy, Paganini’s home town, and is taken out now and then to be played on by the best in the world.

    1. 1. VIOLIN Presented by Aiko V.
    2. 2. Viol inThe word ‘violin’ comes from the Medieval Latin word ‘vitula’ which means stringed instrument. This word is also believed to be the source of the Germanic fiddle. Fiddle is another word for violin but in a more informal way. “Hey diddle diddle, The cat and the fiddle, The cow jumped over the moon. The little dog laughed to see such a sight, And the dish ran away with the spoon.” Hey Diddle Diddle is a famous nursery rhyme song where most young kids learn what a fiddle/violin is. FACT!!!!
    4. 4. VIOLIN The unique sound of a violin is what happens when you combine the sound between its many parts. The way of ‘Arco’ on a string instrument is by drawing a bow across the strings causes them to vibrate. This vibration is transmitted through the bridge and sound post to the body of the violin (mainly the top and back), which allows the sound to effectively radiate into the air. The tension and type of strings, the bow, and the construction of the body all contribute to the loudness and tonal quality of the sound.
    5. 5. VIOLIN Another way of producing sound on the violin is a way called ‘Pizzicato’ which is when the violinist pluck the strings instead of drawing a bow across the string. The way of plucking, pizzicato, was used from Claudio Montevardi's Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda from 1638.
    7. 7. OF THE VIOLIN The violin is mainly composed of the body, strings, the fingerboard, tailpie ce, the peg box and the chinrest.
    8. 8. OF THE VIOLIN The bridge supports the tailpiece and the fine tuners of holding the strings.
    9. 9. OF THE VIOLIN The f-holes are the ones that help the acoustic instruments to produce their sound more efficiently so the sound wouldn’t emanate solely from the location of the hole. ]]
    10. 10. violin (Strings) Violin strings were originally made from catgut which is still available, although its market niche is limited, due to its cost and tuning sensitivity to humidity and temperature. Modern strings are made of steel, stranded steel, or a variety of synthetic materials. Violin strings, with the exception of most E strings and some "historically informed" gut strings are wound (or overspun) with metal, to keep their thickness within comfortable limits, as well as to manage their surface friction properties. Some stranded steel strings have an inner winding under the surface winding

    14. 14. History of the violin
    15. 15. violin The history of bowed string instruments in Europe goes back to the 9th century with the lira of the Byzantine Empire, a bowed instrument. Ibn Khurradadhbih in the year 911, was the first to mention about the bowed Byzantine lira as a typical instrument of the Byzantines and equivalent to the rabāb that was popular in the time of the Islamic Empires. The Byzantine lira spread through Europe in the west direction. For the 11th and 12th century, European writers use the terms fiddle and lira interchangeably when referring to bowed instruments. In the meantime rabāb was made known to the Western Europe through the Iberian Peninsula and both bowed instruments spread widely throughout Europe giving birth to different kinds of xEuropean bowed instruments.
    16. 16. violin It is believed that these instruments eventually spread to China, India, the Byzantine Empire and the Middle East, where they developed into instruments such as the erhu in China, the rebab in the Middle East, the lyra in the Byzantine Empire and the esraj in India. The violin in its present form emerged in early 16th- Century Northern Italy, where the port towns of Venice and Genoa maintained extensive ties to central Asia through the trade routes of the silk road.
