    Hi Simon
    Just a brief message to thank you for the most informative and interesting podcast from the Met with Jason Dobney. What an inspiring way to start the day! Thank you also to David Starobin and Jorge Caballero for their performances as well as your inclusion of them in this podcast.

    If just to hold my first instrument and do nothing but listen to these musicians, I am happy. Jorge Caballero in particular demonstrated to me such fluidity….if that is correct terminology. I am 60 and just starting to learn something I’ve wanted to try for years. Thank you for making all of this available.

    Thank you Simon. It’s such a wonderful and inspiring podcast. I hope someday you can provide us an in-depth look into the string instruments at the Musical Instrument Museum in Arizona.
    Thank you for your generosity and untiring effort for all these educational work.

    thanks for a terrific podcast – and photos – the decorations are fabulous – thanks also to 6strings for the link.
    To hold and play the instruments must be the ultimate connection to the makers and the players of the past.

    Wonderful podcast and such beautiful instruments!

    I recently found a CD recorded in 2012 by the Mexican guitarist Krishnasol Jiménz playing a guitar actually built in 1679 by the great violin maker Antonio Stradivari. It is called “Sabionari guitar” and was in need of restoration. The instrument is now playable and the CD is of music by Robert De Visée. Here is a link if someone wants to have a look:
