This is something very important to me, the very last thing which I played on the 1698 Joachim Strad, before it went off to Switzerland. This has always been something important to me, like working with different composers. I am lucky enough to spend my life working on a variety of instruments, and I think that is is fair enough to say that none of them are ‘my voice’. Rather, each of them teaches me something, about myself, about the composers I play, about the instrument and the bow, and about the players who have used them before. This is the great privilege, to be part of this ongoing conversation. (PSS April l2014)
