The Genius of the Violin
What is Genius? Is it a special characteristic that only a few people possess? Or is it the curiosity and determination to master techniques passed on by tradition that assists in the unlocking of possibilities buried in the body of a technology? The Genius of the Violin explores the technology of the violin/fiddle and the different ways it can be used. The musicians share their personal stories and perform both from within their tradition and struggle to perform across traditions learning both about themselves and each other in the process.
