Yann Besson, a French national, born in 1976, started his apprenticeship as a violin and viola maker at the French National Violin Making School of Mirecourt in 1991. After graduating in 1996 with a rarely given distinction, Yann has worked in a number of workshops across the world. This prompted him to develop his own personal style of making and eventually led to him setting up his own full-time violin and viola making business in 2002. His instruments are now played by international artists.
Yann specialises in violas and cellos. He is very well-known in the UK and France and his instruments are always in high demand.
Every instrument is available for trial at our beautiful central London showroom.
