Manfio's Bench; My latest instrument...

Recommended Posts

Thank you! It's beautiful. :wub:

Did she try it in person? Or did she buy it "sight unseen" - which doesn't makes sense, but you know what I mean. I hope. ^_^

Her teacher knows my work for decades, so she got it "sight unseen". Many players do that, including professionals. Just sent one to S. Korea.

Yes. I was just wondering - especially since the advice is always to try an instrument in person, yet the reality is that often that's just not possible.

One of my violas in action, in Berlin. This trio is new to me, many viola solos. The violist is principal of the European Union Youth Orchestra and studies with Hartmut Rohde at the UDK Berlin.

 

This is really outstanding playing. No complaints at all.

Yes, just imagine that 90% of all Italian art works were commissioned... When Michelangelo made his "Pietà", he was 24 years old. Most of the classic instruments were commissioned.

Manfio,  That's a very scary video!  Pushing that gouge towards your hand like that!  

No, the trajectory of the gouge is controlled, it will never hit my left hand.
