GIVEAWAY ENDS SEPTEMBER 30, 2017
Budapest Lutherie Violin. 4/4 size, value $2,800
Hungarian music has always been an experiment of old and new, of classical and folk. Hungarian violinists have represented this rich array of styles, from the soaring brilliance of Joachim and Szigeti to the dark passion of Lakatos. Conservatory training in Hungary focuses as much on the meaning of music and the art of ensemble playing as it does on developing technical mastery. For players seeking a violin that will allow them to express their many musical ideas, the Budapest Lutherie violin may be the partner they have been looking for. Maker-made in the modern tradition, the Budapest Lutherie violin possesses the foundation of old Europe – well-aged spruce and maple from the Carpathian Eastern Alpine forests. With a distinctive sound that sets it apart from most of today’s violins, a varnish that allows the sound to emerge, and a fine setup for great hand-feel and playability, this violin is equally at home in the concert hall as in the salon. Guy Laurent Three Star violin bow. 4/4 size. Value $660 There are stunning silver fittings and a snakewood frog on this impressive bow!

In addition, there are two recipes available for each: Crisp and Supple, which describe sound and feel of the rosin: – Crisp: Emphasizes a sforzando attack, clear articulation, defined sautille bowing, and a precise and resonant sound – Supple: Rounder attack, seamless bow changes, and a lush, warm sound.
