2007 violin...thinking of Mother's Day

2007 violin, originally uploaded by robert.ditterich.
This violin was being made around the time of my mother's death and it carries a hand written dedication to her inside on the back. It was sold soon after, but I remember it has a clear, powerful tone and a capacity to play right up the fingerboard without 'cracking' the sound. It is a low arched instrument of considerable power.

  1. I had no idea you made this one with Nan in mind. How special. What a lovely thing to think that it is somewhere out there giving some enjoyment to its owner (and audience?). Maybe your mum is in those sounds a little bit too.
