Viola by Johann Joseph Stadlmann
Catalog 43. Viola – Johann Joseph Stadlmann, Vienna, 1764
Johann Joseph (1720-1781) was the son of Daniel Achatius Stadlmann (ca. 1680-1744), the founder of this distinguished Viennese dynasty of luthiers in the 18th C. In fact, Daniel Achatius was entrusted with the Imperial monopoly on the wood trade for the guild of luthiers, which explains why the instruments of this Family were constructed from the finest, first-choice materials.
