Guarneri, The

The Guarneri (often referred to in the Latinized form Guarnerius) is the family name of a group of distinguished string instruments from Cremona in Italy in the 17th and 18th centuries, whose standing is considered comparable to those of the Amati and Stradivari families. Some of the world's most famous violinists, such as Niccolò Paganini, Jascha Heifetz, Yehudi Menuhin have preferred Guarneris to Stradivaris.
