Inquiries from my Inbox: assindiastignani asks, “There are some videos of you rehearsing, talking about, playing bits and pieces of the Bruch Scottish Fantasy. Do you have anywhere a complete performance of the work with you and orchestra? I'd really love it if you would put it on your channel. Many thanks!!”

Random Musical Thought: What is early music?

A conversation with multi-instrumentalist and early music specialist David Douglass about the violin’s medieval ancestors. Includes four pieces from the 1200s played by Rachel Barton Pine on rebec and David Douglass on rebec or vielle.
