poetic violin descriptions, anyone?

December 1, 2005 17:43

Well, here I am at the end of the semester, and I am finally beginning a blog on! I've never blogged before, so we shall see how it goes.

Right now, I have a final draft of an English paper and two Music History papers due within the next week or so. Plus four theory tests, a eurhythmics test, my first studio class appearance(!), and a jury. It's really not all that much stuff as I have kept up with everything pretty well all along.

Tonight I am writing a paper for Music History comparing the violin family with the viol family. I'm pretty excited about it. Does anyone have any "poetic descriptions" or "names" of the violin? I know it has been called the "devil's instrument" and I think "master of the orchestra" or something like that. If anyone has any such elegant labels for the violin, I would be much appreciative!

Well, I must begin working on my paper now!

All the best to all of you!
