Leonardo Plattner is a Swiss luthier, born in 1978, who lives in Madrid. Leonardo Plattner entered the world of violin making through music, as a guitarist. After working for several years with Jacques Vincenti in Geneva, he moved to Madrid in 2010 with the intention of learning traditional Madrid building techniques. This quest leads him to knock on the door of the prestigious Arcangel Fernandez, last active link of the "great" school of Madrid (Santos Hernandez, Marcelo Barbero). Arcangel Fernandez, about to retire, agrees to share his knowledge and to transmit his method of construction. In October 2011, Leonard took over the workshop of Arcangel Fernandez and since, built his own guitars with tools, woods and templates inherited from his master. Leonardo Plattner offers concert instruments entirely made by hand while perpetuating the same gestures that shaped the prestige of Madrilenian flamenco guitars.
