Jan Szlachtowski, Poland 2022
Jan Szlachtowski (b.1951, present) was born and raised in Nowy Targ, Poland. He had furthered his skills in the workshop of William Haris Lee in Chicago and went back to his hometown where he continues to operate his shop today. Modern polish instruments offer substantial rewards for players as they often perform far better than many of their more expensive counterparts (new and old) from other regions. This handcrafted cello was made entirely in Szlachtowski’s workshop and finished by him personally. It has a tremendous sound and would best fit the conservatory-level to professional player.
