Ernst Heinrich Roth

16" inch viola by Ernst Heinrich Roth 1970.

Ernst Heinrich Roth (1877-1948) was a German luthier and master of a large and successful violin-maker workshop in the East German town of Markneukirchen. He was the most important and distinguished figure in a whloe dynasty of Roth luthiers active in Germany. The instruments stand out by the exceptional quality of their wood with very fine-grained Italian spruce on top and a highly flamed maple back. Their oil varnish was frequently an attractive red-brown on a warm, golden ground. All those attributes, together with a powerful, rich and mellow yet focused tone with bright, carrying overtones, have secured top Roth instruments a reputation as excellent orchestral and solo instruments.
