Tasmanian Hardanger Fiddle Concert

Recommended Posts

Hey Lyndon good to hear from you , yes the middle and upper register is very sweet , every now and then it really takes off .

Yes gut strings , lowest wound gut , then half wound , solid gut , and steel.

 

I do have a edited CD of the concert with just the tunes , if anyone REALLY wants one I'm  happy to post  ( costs me about 10 bucks with postage) so maybe only if you can't live without it .

Adam,

 

Just ran across this YouTube video while doing a little tune research, then found your post here on Maestronet.  

 

Really nice sounding.  Cool concert, a splendid memorial.

 

Cheers,

 

Ken

I love the sound of these instruments.  Does anyone know how the tatoo's on the instrument's body are done?

I would guess they are drawn on but I've seen photos where the black appears sunken.

Thanks Ken

The drawings are called "Rosing" , it's put on under varnish with ink

In the very early ones they had a bit of colour, mostly green and red on the main motif under the bridge,

Remembering that these instruments came to light during the late 1600 / early 1700's when it was fashionable for everything to be highly ornate, I suspect the Dutch folk art had a tremendous influence on the region at the time

Viola D Amore next , then another Hardanger

Cheers Adam
