  1. With all due respect for the serious situation, I cannot resist not noticing that this is a unique case of the original being imported from China to Italy, and then a copy from Italy spread around the world.
  2. As we wait for the media to bring us real facts and until resolve the issue of whose health insurance is better, the situation in supermarkets is getting increasingly worse ... https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2020/03/05/condoms-coronavirus-covid-19-australia-singapore-twitter-ryde-district-mums/
  3. A lot of people are very anxious about coronavirus these days. Maybe they need to apply Clinton's recipe?
  4. Here's another, brand new one. For those who have decided to hide and wait for the disease to pass.
  5. ...5 pages and the abstract is...
  6. Nope. She reaches for a handkerchief to wipe away a tear ... That's exactly what was my point when I showed video of Hauser with children and the other video that shows him as a serious classical musician. BTW, Luka Šulić, the other half of 2 Cellos, recently recorded in Rome the complete Four Seasons (with orchestra Archi dell' Santa Cecilia), and a three weeks ago he performed this peace at a concert, where it was a lot of young audience that has never before, I'm sure of that, been to a concert of classical music.
  7. Adagio (Albinoni). 307K likes. Without visual incomprehensible distractions...
  8. An excerpt from an interview with the naked cellist Stjepan Hauser: Q: What is the situation with the classics, does the audience or the classics die out? I would say that the "hardcore" classic, unfortunately, is slowly dying, and for that I don't blame the audience too much, but the people who present the classic in a dry and boring way. Instead of breaking down barriers and walls against the audience, they add even more tension and rules to the classic, and the performers and the audience often dislike the choice of works they often perform. What I do may interest the masses as well, and I think that is a good thing for the classics as well. And the result is:
  9. I think Three 13 is most likely right. The part that has been cut down is this: A Stradivari portrait medallion appeared to the public in the early 1920-ties. In the USA the news was published in The Colusa Herald, Volume XXXVIII, Number 52, 4 October 1923. The poster with the medallion was printed in Milan, probably a little earlier, and the exclusive reproduction rights in the USA were granted (probably in 9 October 1923) to E.J & J Virzi, 503 Fifth Ave. & 42nd St. New York City.
  10. Quite "chalk and cheese". According to description it's much longer that OP viola: Dimensions: length of back 35.8cm, stop 130/196cm No way the UK get used to the metric system
  11. Šefl, Libor , violin maker, born 12. 6. 1932, Cheb. He was trained in Cremona*, Poland, under the leadership of violin-makers Josef Pötzl and Josef Vávra . After his apprenticeship he worked in Cremona* and at the same time he was also engaged in independent production of tools. He worked for a year in the workshop of Alfred Neudörfer , a specialist in the construction of cello. Since 1969 he works independently in his own workshop. He initially produced mostly violins, and later began to specialize in the construction of cello. He has successfully participated in a number of international violin competitions. *Following the 1948 Czechoslovak coup d'état, Czechoslovakia fell under communist rule and the remaining violin making industry in Luby, supported by the Violin Making School, was nationalized under the name Cremona. In 2005, the Violin Making School moved to Cheb. In the 1970s and 1980s, the Luby School was well-represented by master luthiers Emil Lupač, Karel Zadražil, Josef Budil, Miroslav Pikart, Libor Šefl, and Jan Pötzl, all of whom had worked for the Cremona factory in Luby.
  12. Thank you for the compliment but that wasn't a big deal. Identifying who create a house is a lot easier than who made a violin. There are a lot less fakes.
  13. Yes, this house is on the left on the photo. The front of the house is well visible on the other postcard in my last post - the one in the middle. As far that could be seen, none of the shops in the ground floor isn't violin shop. But, considering that the postcard is made at the end of the 19th C. it could be that earlier there was one. Not only Prague look like Vienna. If you ever visit Zagreb, you will see why we locals like to call our town "Little Vienna".
  14. Well, I tried harder and - BINGO Here is a link: http://www.starapraha.cz/pohlednice-praha-jecna-zitna.php See No. 432 and 434 (for text you can use translate button) Another link: http://www.old-prague.com/postcards-prague-boundary-between-old-and-new-town.php See No. 316 edited: 2:35 pm
