Pretty good player, and good insight from his non-violinist companion. The lighter his touch, the better the sound. even on my lousy laptop speakers. The second violin sounded quite nice as well, but I thought the difference between the Del Gesu and the other, unknown instrument was distinct.
I understand this may all be relative, and that even the masters made some clunkers, but for those highly accomplished violinists who have had the opportunity to try some absolutely top-notch violins, is it true that the better the quality of instrument, the less effort required to make it sound beautiful?
