Windsor Whipworks presents a talk by violin-makers

Print More

Violin-makers Jon Thompson and Christoph Blumrich speak with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about their talk and demonstration — and Christoph brought his home-made baryton! The baryton enjoyed a brief vogue in the early 1800s. Haydn’s patron Prince Esterhazy played the instrument and Haydn wrote quite a few works for the Prince to play.
