“I consider ANDREA HOFFMAN-SIMMEL one of the finest violin makers of the day. Her remarkable command of acoustics helps bring out the best in the player, and her outstanding workmanship pleases the eye as well. The wonderful violin she built for me is a worthy companion for my 1713 ‘Pingrilli’ Strad.”—GABRIEL BANAT, soloist and chamber musician, member of the New York Philharmonic for 25 years.
“My 1995 viola made by Andrea Hoffman-Simmel is a fine instrument... powerful, focused and clear, capable of both sweetness and depth.”—EUGENE DRUCKER, concert violinist and founding member of the Emerson Quartet
