The Norman Rosenberg Collection

I visited Norman a couple of times - he was a keen lurker on Maestronet and on one occasion after I'd been extolling the virtues of Maidstones and lesser trade violins he said '"come to the house and I'll show you a few Maidstones". I went round and he had laid 12 violins out on a table - I remember a Strad, a Montagnana, a Balestrieri, an Andrea Guarneri, a Grancino, a Londolfi, some kind of Tononi, a Gagliano, can't remember what else ... then we looked at bows. Wow.

I remember walking back to the tube station in a complete daze!

I'm very happy for Ingles & Hayday that they have been given the entire collection - it will be great to see it all in one place, and it's good that everyone gets a fair crack at being the new owner of one or two of these lovely items.
