  1. Hello Rachell, this was on MN four years ago:
  2. Ever since I read this comment, I can't get a blasphemous scene out of my head: One evening the Master came to the BIERTAUFEL bar. “Ein großes Bier bitte. Oder noch besser, gib mir ein großes Glas Pflaumensaft, es fühlt sich nicht sehr gut an.” He drank his juice and climbed the stairs to his apartment above the bar. For the next hour or two the barman heard music coming from the Master's apartment. But it didn’t sound as nice as ever, and suddenly stopped. After about half an hour the bar was fulfilled with divine sounds of the Ode to Joy. See what you did? Every ne
  3. At the link below is a list of all of Beethoven's dwellings in Vienna and the surrounding area, so that Jacob or anyone else who has ambitions can make a tour in the past time without the TARDIS. https://www.virtualvienna.net/beethovens-dwellings/ I personally once just stood in front of the house at Ungargasse 5 where, as it stands on a memorial plaque, Beethoven finished his 9th Symphony. In the house is not a museum but a pub with the significant name BIERTEUFEL. Until I visit Vienna again I have to be satisfied with my personal Beethoven’s corner in my office
  4. Slavko Domitrović was well known and probably the best among the few Croatian violin makers. He died in 2015 as you can see here: https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/332082-in-memoriam-slavko-domitrović/ If your violin is from 2013, it’s probably one of the last ones he made. Hence perhaps a certain roughness in the details.
  5. 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.
  6. 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/
  7. A lot of people are very anxious about coronavirus these days. Maybe they need to apply Clinton's recipe?
  8. Here's another, brand new one. For those who have decided to hide and wait for the disease to pass.
  9. ...5 pages and the abstract is...
  10. 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.
  11. Adagio (Albinoni). 307K likes. Without visual incomprehensible distractions...
  12. 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 we
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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 vio
