Like a wand chooses the wizard, the violin chose me. Once in its spell I couldn’t resist the enormous beauty of this instrument. Both the warm-hearted sound and the fabulous appearance convinced me when I took out the violin of its case for the first time. For me this violin is more than just an instrument made from wood. It seems as if I can feel a soul in it’s sound like a Samurai feels the soul of his sword when he touches it. Thank you Hans for this great work!
