‘I am very fortunate to be able to play on the Carlo Carletti violin loaned by the Harrison Frank foundation. After finishing my undergraduate the only option was to play on my own violin but I could not do much with it technically or acoustically. I love the rich vibrant lower strings and the bright and balanced upper strings. Every note has a clarity and resonance that amazes me. It is a delight to play every day on this instrument.’
