Having traveled across the US and Europe with the highlights from this sale, I experienced the joy these instruments and bows bring to our viewers.  It was incredibly rewarding to meet the tremendously talented students at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, inspired members of the trade at the Indianapolis VSA Convention and Mondomusica Cremona, and to host our first public viewing in Zurich .  Interacting with those who admire and appreciate these instruments as much as we do was a true privilege. ” – Carlos Tome, Head of Sales.
