Some new additions to the musical household lately:
Sadly I don’t get to keep this one.
Well, sadly in terms of it’s a beautiful instrument that I’m enjoying playing. Less so in terms of paying for it would cut well into the savings I’m supposed to be keeping for a future flat deposit, so maybe not sadly really.
Reproduction Baroque violin by Marc Soubé and Baroque bow, on loan from Bridgewood and Neitzert – so that I can play them on the début album by La Folie, which we’re recording Sunday and Monday. Very exciting!
This one I am keeping:
No, not a new instrument, hence why it’s closed, just a new case. But after something like 2 years of lugging around my old viola case by bungee cords since it parted company with its handle and strap attachments, one that I can carry on my shoulders (and is light enough to do so for long periods comfortably) is almost as exciting as a new instrument frankly. It’s the little things in life. Big thanks to Jo Cocklin of Allegro Music in Chelmsford for getting me a good deal on this – highly recommended for all your musical needs.
