Although Stradivari is best known for his violins, he also made other string instruments. His cello "Stauffer", made in 1700, is considered a national treasure of Italy. Completing the quartet with rich, deep tones, it adds weight to the overall sound of the ensemble. CREMONA QUARTET's sounds were recorded using a bespoke set of microphones and preamps placed in a specially designed acoustic environment. Even the locals of Cremona played their part: all traffic near the hall stopped during the recording so that no external noise could interrupt the process.
