Here's a link to a couple of video clips where I'm playing on the Jupiter Strad (1700) and Ray Lee's Ole Bull copy. In the first two video's I'm playing Ray Lee's instrument, and in the third I'm playing the Strad with a Tourte bow. Thank you to Ray for making these accessible.

A friend at the Darnton workshop, Ray Lee, brought a gorgeous violin that he built for the Ole Bull project that took place in Oslo this spring. (Unfortunately, the volcanic dust cloud over Europe put a kink in his plan to ship the violin to the exhibition). This violin is a joy to play and to look at, and I spent a good while doing both. Here's a pic that Ray took . . .
