Description

French builder Bertrand Ligier brings together flawless fit and finish, an eye for the details, and an ear for mixing energy and elegance with this number from 2018. Straight-grain Indian Rosewood back and sides pair up with German Spruce on top (one of our favorite sets we’ve seen in some time), a gorgeously clear French Polish finish throughout, and intricate mosaic rosette for understated good looks. The voice is simply a delight. Lively and energetic strings mix up clearly and dynamically across the registers, with a layer of sweetly cool overtones in the top end that adds a level of bloom and presence to slow passages. We also love the responsiveness of the bass register, which suffuses a warmth across the voice.
Bertrand Ligier’s work is on a top shelf all of its own, reminiscent of both Friederich and Bouchet but all his own.

Another phenomenal Classical in the French tradition. Bertrand Ligier has been compared to Dominque Field and Daniel Friederich, with some of the aesthetic refinements of Robert Bouchet as well.
