As part of the RNCM’s prestigious Manchester International Violin Competition, the four violin makers William Castle, Helen Michetschläger, Kai-Thomas Roth, and Marc Soubeyran will work together to make a copy of a Guadagnini violin. The making process is broadcasted as live stream: www.ustream.tv/channel/rncm-test
The violin will be set up in full playing condition, but will be varnished subsequently. After varnishing, the violin will become part of the RNCM collection for loan to RNCM students. The finished violin will be played for the first time by one of the Competition’s semi-finalists on the final day of the Competition. As part of this special event, the makers will be available to answer questions about the process.
