Outstanding Baroque Violin Bow Maker

Walter Barbiero

bow maker

One of the best known bow makers in Italy, Walter Barbiero enjoys a vast reputation as one of the leading archetiers of his generation. He makes bows for all string instruments and all periods. His bows are played by top musicians such as Isabelle Faust, Mario Brunello and more.

He received a diploma from the Conservatoire “A. Steffani” of Castelfranco Veneto with Luca Volpato, and a diploma at the “Ecole Nationale de Musique et de Dance” in France with H. Suignard.

He has a particular passion for baroque and classical bows. As such, he has made bows for Giuliano Carmignola, who used one to record Vivaldi concertos for Deutsche Grammophon. Another recording featuring one of his bows is Viktoria Mullova’s Bach Sonatas and Partitas for Onux.

His bows differ from the others for their soft and elegant sound but above all for their good technical characteristics. He always prioritises the player as he feels that musicians can best express their thoughts, emotions and music through his bows.
