MY VIOLA


Inasmuch as I have mentioned it, I thought someone might be interested in seeing my viola.  It was made by Marten Cornellissen, a Northampton Mass luthier.  My bow, not shown here, was made by the great French-American archetier Benoit Roland.  As my viola teacher acerbically observed when I bought them, "Now you don't have any excuses."  Needless to say, they are much too good for me!

I'm more interested in seeing what's on that bookshelf!

Such a beautiful thing. Closer to a violin in size than I had imagined.

It is a sixteen inch viola, not a sixteen and a half inch as many violists play. It really is beautiful.
