Award-winning Swiss luthier David Leonard Wiedmer has set himself the task of reproducing the legendary Italian violin at his workshop tucked away in a quayside in Lyon, southeast France.Wiedmer may still only be 29, but he has already made his reputation as a master craftsman.One of his violins won gold at the Violin Society of America's international competition last year. Trained at the Ecole nationale de lutherie de Mirecourt, in eastern France, Wiedmer served apprenticeships in New York -- and London with renowned luthier Florian Leonhard -- before setting up shop in Lyon three years ago. While part of learning his craft involved restoring old instruments, he quickly moved on to creating his own.
