My latest cello is now finished and gone to its new owner, Katarina Majcen. Katarina is taking up the post of Principal Cello in the newly formed Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra In New York. The cello and the orchestra can be heard in the Carnegie Hall in early October. The cello is a copy of the Marquess de Corberon Stradivari of 1726 made with a very beautiful deeply figured back of Poplar. I have one more piece of this exceptional wood for another cello, as well as some stunning, old, Bird's Eye maple.
