A "strong" violin?
Tom_R posted a topic in The FingerboardI remember reading a long while ago (source forgotten) about some very fine violins whose best tone and projection could only be brought out by the highest caliber players. In another context I overheard a conservatory student refer to a violin she tried as "strong," which I at first interpreted as a positive description of its sound - very good to my ear. It was later clarified that she meant "it took a lot of work" to make it sound that way. Is this use of "strong" common in describing a violin like this? Thanks, - Tom

Don Noon posted a topic in The PegboxFrom the thread about playing in the white... I'm also interested in this, but don't expect to be at Oberlin next year. Why wait? Why Oberlin? We can discuss this topic now, here, in a new thread. What do you have, David? Anybody? I'll wait a bit and see where this goes before laying out my unfocused thoughts.
