Tonal comparisons of contemporary American makers shown at Metzler Violins, 2020, but recorded, since the demonstration exhibition was cancelled. Who made your favorite? I was trying to read Fatu's face to see which was the most comfortable. And violas (clearly 2nd class fiddle): There's even at least one entrant of a forum Denizen - Barnes (above). Sorry, a general 2020 viola link is now marked private, and the general viola clipss are not able to embed, only individual ones, for some reason, so I started at the beginning. Of course, it's the violas that give trouble.... Finally beat Rue to a post. lulz.
Pictures from Metzler's American Makers Exhbition (and sale), 2019. All played with absolutely stunning precision (35 times! 36 if you count him playing on his Strad at the end) the same 2 passages by Cho-Liang Lin. I have the pictures below, in order; a video will be posted on violinist.com, and a live stream may be viewable from Metzler's facebook page. I will post video if I have time, but as I found: impossible to both listen and record properly at the same time. I was mostly interested in listening. Absolute Shout-out to the Metzler's staff: very professional, and attentive. We start with Luis Amorim, Brazil, and Dorian Barnes. Barnes' fiddle has an absolutely stunning varnish, very nicely colored. I think he is using Joe's varnish. Well done! P.S. I posted them, and they uploaded, in order, but Barnes, #2, is first in the post, for some strange reason. I will post individually, because of this. Apologies for the uneven lighting. I had only a few minutes before the hordes descended, and then it was every violinist to himself. People will not get out of the way for a Maestronet photog!
