This violin bow was made by Tibor Kovács in Cremona. Tibor is the youngest of the exhibiting bow makers. Since the bows are listed chronologically according to the date of birth of the makers, this bow — after Béla Szepessy’s ’overture’ — is the ’closing chord’ of the exhibition. I deliberately did not analyze the works of my contemporary colleagues, but with the last bow in the list I decided to break this rule.
Tibor’s works evokes the design of the early French school (around 1800) without imitating them.
