By Thomas Georgi, violinist/violist (and sometimes viola d'amorist)
Choosing a new violin/viola/cello/bass is not easy. Even for players with extensive experience, quality of tone, projection, and ease of response are hard to assess with confidence.
I am particularly interested in the music of the middle to end of the eighteenth century, which is the period that sees the end of what we call the baroque, a flowering of what many refer to as the galant style, and the beginning of the classical era. I have the great good fortune to play a viola that couldn’t be better suited to that repertoire.
