Building bowed instruments for more than 25 years gave me the opportunity to measure quite a lot of original 17th and 18th century instruments. Among these are instruments from makers like Barak Norman, Edward Lewis, Cheron, Bertrand, Rombouts, Jacobs, Hellmer, Stradivari, Castagnieri, Linarol and Ciciliano. The list of names includes cellos, basses, the members of the viol family from treble viol to consort bass, and the viola d'amore.

“We would like to invite you to the next concert, 'For the Birds', with harpsichordist Jonathan Addleman and baroque violinist Sari Tsuji.
Nightingales, cuckoos, chickens – birds inspired composers to write some charming music!
