How do vastly different venues highlight various aspects of the same instruments? And how about the development of one violin maker through a span of twenty years? Through a series of concerts in spectacular venues around Oslo these questions were explored. The audience was invited for a truly special experience with musicians playing their own instruments made by violin maker Jacob von der Lippe, and we have attempted to capture that atmosphere here on this live recording.
A 12 page booklet with an introduction text by Norwegian writer Edvard Hoem is included.
