I was using Hans‘s Viola for my “Schwerpunkt Bratsche” (Main Subject) at Mozarteum University, Salzburg. At the time I was looking for a good viola for my examination and my teacher, Anita Mitterer, advised me to visit his workshop. I remember that I smiled contentedly after playing the first note on his instrument, not only beautiful round and balanced sound but also easy to play. Because of Hans‘s Viola, I got „Sehr gut“ for the examination 🙂
