Jean-Jacques Kantorow

“I’ve been amazed by the quality of the instruments, they have it all, beauty of workmanship, harmony and most of all, the most important for me, the quality of timbre, the harmonics and a large and powerful tone. I will be very glad to play my Marc Paquin in concert.”

Leticia Moreno

“Getting to know the work of Luthier and Violinist Marc Paquin has been one of the most enlightening experiences for me.

His instruments have all the ingredients that I could wish for in a violin: profound and powerful sound, clear and brilliant diction, and an infinite palette of colors.

On top of that, these instruments truly offer endless possibilities for the performer to express themselves with absolute freedom.

I feel fortunate to play on one of Marc Paquin’s violins.“
