  1. Thanks Augustin Hadelich.|01||4eb6ef234f7b4c4b779b08d7f8f5e3f6|84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa|1|0|637251607279052896&sdata=tj%2FGbth3fXLfjjfRUenWJ1pJ3AKiBynVGv2WV0RlAe4%3D&reserved=0
  2. Violon de Andrea Amati, vers 1560, un des premiers violons connus ( celui ci s’appelle "Il Portoghese" car je l’ai découvert au Portugal il y a environ 25 ans) Il a été fait pour Charles IX, roi de France, fils de Catherine de Médicis, roi de la Saint Barthélemy, il est à l’origine de la tradition du muguet pour le premier Mai. Même si c’était une tradition celtique, en en offrant aux dames de la Cour en 1561, il en a fixé l’usage.
  3. Lovely man and great cellist and musician!
  4. I would be very happy to be able to tune a piano this way!
  5. Two of my instruments, I didn’t build the piano, but with the quarantine.............. why not?
  6. I’m not sure that any of us is able to make a violin sounding like this one and with this response, set up with Eudoxa or Olive, but maybe I’m wrong.
  7. I’m wondering if the superiority of classical instruments (Stradivari, Guarneri,Amati) was not more obvious 50 years ago. With the "modern strings (post Dominant) we have been able to bring open sound and clarity to modern violins, what was before the quality of many great instruments. Only good instruments was sounding well with Eudoxa or Oliv strings. What do you think? Modern strings can have levelled de difference of sound between Strads and modern violins?
  8. Working very well, after almost one year of quarantine, it’s piece of cake! Be better Jim!
  9. I’m not able to give any response to this topic, but I was very surprised, when assisting to a rehearsal in a very good concert hall (Gewandhaus Leipzig) the sound of the violin (soloist playing Shostakovich) was the same when he was facing the (non) public or the orchestra.
  10. I have noticed that A( open string)is the frequency of the vibration of the head in viola and cello. The open A string is always a little bit ugly, but if the neck is too thin, it’s a desastre. this doesn’t happen so many in the violin because the neck is shorter in relation to his thickness.
  11. French cellist Maurice Gendron was smoking all the time and the ashes was falling on his Stradivari cello trough the FF holes. He was used to say: "I have the most expensive ashtray in the world "
