  1. Does anyone know what the earliest work for violin by an American composer was? I can't find a definitive answer.
  2. When did performers start using vibrato on violins? Is there a particular composer or performer who instituted it?
  3. FOR SALE: Used copy of "the British Violin" in very good condition This well known book was published by the British Violin Making Association to accompany the 1998 exhibition "400 years of violin and bow making in the British Isles". In addition to the superb photographs and instrument data, there is an excellent and informative historical section dealing with the major figures in the development of violin family instrument and bow makers. This is a used copy with some marks and yellowing on the cover but otherwise in very good condition. If you need any further description don't hesitate to contact me. The price of the book is £125 with free postage and packing within the UK and Royal Mail postage rates outside the UK.
  4. Hello - I am researching three violinists - Amely Heller - ca. 1905 Helen Jourdan-Morhange - b. 1888 d. 1961 Anne Briggs - ca. 1895 (her sister, Esther Briggs played piano) I have exhausted my resources to find any dates of performance or bibliographic material - Jourdan-Morhange was a friend & colleague of Ravel. Does anyone know about digital files of back issues of The Strad magazine, other periodicals such as Violins and Violinists and The Violin Times. Cheers - Andrew
  5. I have already commented on Simone Sacconi's appreciation of both the lowly bee and the lowly egg as necessities for ultimate practice in violin finishing. This man exalts nature! But an offhand mention of his garden in the varnish chapter passes us right by, no? So then, let's pick up on a gardener's broad hint and consider plant substances in more detail. From the garden go find the hottest available peppers. Grind the seeds finely without ever touching them. Boil them in plain water for a long time to extract the capsaicin chemical. Filter. Capsaicin is used everywhere by gardeners. This stuff attacks the nerves of animals and keeps pests away from valued plants. Bugs are kept away from fruits and vegetables. On human skin, it is neurotoxic. So sugar or honey was added to the extracted capsaicin, and the PRINCIPAL intent or goal was to make the preparation safe for handling by gardeners. See: http://www.indiacurry.com/faqhints/howreduceheatchilipeppers.htm When Italian gardeners like Sacconi, and earlier the Cremonese masters without a doubt, applied a hot capsaicin/honey preparation to their woods, I beleve they arrived at Jezzupe's sugar inner seal and very quickly recognized its finishing potential. Certainly gardeners also used a weak gum binder. Acacia or tragacanth would do. The Cremonese added borax. Anything else? Next they "flame polished" the wood, which of course got them to the sugar ground. I expect this plant chemistry will be confirmed by experiment to be the origin of the fabled grain contrast. otter
  6. “Imitation, Genetic Lineages, and Time Influenced the Morphological Evolution of the Violin” It doesn’t look like there is anything new and earth shattering here, but still a fun and interesting read.
  7. Hello, I recently acquired a violin with a somewhat unusual case. The case is solid wood, with metal (?) latches. The ball feet are made of wood, too. The inside is quite nice, given the age. It is lined with a green fabric (velvet?). Before creating an account, I would sometimes lurk in here. I wanted, especially, the input of GlennYorkPA. I've read some of his posts regarding violin cases. (I haven't read his book, yet. Sorry! ) I would be glad to hear information from anyone! I have taken many pictures. So, I created a photo album under my SkyDrive. Here is the link: http://sdrv.ms/119w8E4 Furthermore, I have pictures of the violin and the bow. I'd be happy to hear any information (history, maker, repair estimates, etc.) about those, as well. Thank you for your help! - Totti
