A CD that Keith brought in had all of us fascinated. It's locally produced in Seattle. James Ehnes - Homage.
This is a CD/DVD set that had James Ehnes playing violins and violas from the Fulton Collection. This is one of the most important private collections of instruments in the world - with Stradivari, Guarneri, da Solo, and Guadgnini. We played several tracks, as well as an excerpt from Bruch's Scottish Fantasy played on nine violins ranging from the 1698 Guarneri, through 8 Stradivari. A landmark recording with great performances.
If anybody's curious as to the different sounds of various violins, this album is a must-have.
