Tafelmusik violinist Thomas Georgi continues building his violin as part of #TafelmusikTogether (with his trusty companion and cat Raven.) Here's a quick update about the violin's scroll and finger board.
How are you spending your time at home? Our violinist, Thomas Georgi, has decided to build a violin. Thomas—along with his cat Raven, who makes a surprise cameo—will keep us abreast of his progress with video updates.
Watch along with us to learn more about the process of making a violin from scratch.
For our upcoming concert in April, Bach: Keeping it in the Family, we invited the father/daughter duo Alfredo and Cecilia Bernardini to co-guest direct this (almost) all-Bach program. Both have performed with Tafelmusik in the past but it's been a while since our last catch-up.
Our upcoming concert series A Grand Tour of Italy, which features the Tafelmusik solo concerto debut of our own Cristina Zacharias, transports you to seventeenth century Italy, highlighting Italian composers and the violin. The Italians really embraced the violin — instrument makers, violinists, and composers: some would say this really is where the violin was born.
