Interesting! I have to admit that normally I wouldn’t have watched that but since the state of the union is on I had time. It must be quite a thrill to play such an instrument.

Thank you for posting that video.

I have a friend whose daughter is a concert violist. A friend of theirs bought a “private dinner in a home” at a local charity auction and gave 2 of the tickets to my friend. My friends arrived at the address given without knowing the names of the hosts.

The lady of the house was busy in the kitchen, and cocktails and hors d’oevres were being served in the library. Suddenly, everyone hushed; and Frank Almond appeared at the top of the stairs and entered the room playing the Lipinski. This was just after it was discovered in a Milwaukee bank vault and loaned to the MSO for Almond’s use. He had not played it in public yet.

He entertained the 8 or 10 guests for an hour before dinner. My friends do not remember what was served for dinner.
