September 17, 2004 at 01:35 AM · I HAVE A VIOLA BY EULO DORFINO. IT IS A NAME THAT WAS USED BY PAUL DORFFEL FROM MARKNEUKIRCHEN GERMANY. MY VIOLA WAS MADE FOR WILLIAM MOENNIG OF PHILADELPHIA IN 1927. THE DORFFEL FAMILY HAS A LONG HISTORY OF VIOLIN MAKING. AS FAR AS VALUE IS CONCERNED, I DO NOT KNOW. MY VIOLA IS EXCELLENT, AND HAS THE SOUND OF AN OLD "GREAT" INSTRUMENT. EVERYONE IS AMAZED. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A VIOLIN HOWEVER. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT OTHER DORFINO INSTRUMENTS.
MINE BELONGED TO A MEMBER OF THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA WHO DIED RECENTLY, IRVING SEGALL. THE VIOLA HAS BEEN WELL PLAYED AND WELL TREATED.
I AM NOW PLAYING IT IN THE GULBENKIAN ORCHESTRA IN LISBON PORTUGAL.
