The blog has a couple of new posts.

The neck being carved and the neck being fitted to the body of the instrument.

There is also the Viola being played for the very first time!  Pretty cool to hear and see it actually playing after all the work over tha last few months.

"These last couple of weeks have been rather exciting as I handed over the finished viola to Gareth Lubbe (viola player of the Quartet)."

The viola sound terrific and the others will surely be of the same standard. The luthier and the sponsors surely have high ideals for the project that the  four Nobel Prize winners inspired. I would have thought that when choosing the players, four players from different cultural backgrounds would be given the honor.  An opportunity  to show progress missed?
