Violin maker Sam Zygmuntowicz joined us for a live Cozio Q&A session on Wednesday 13 January.

Brooklyn-based Zygmuntowicz, whose copy of Isaac Stern’s Guarneri violin set a new record for an instrument by a living maker in 2003, answered a variety of questions on his approach to tone production and other areas relating to sound.
