Elena Dal Cortivo

Silvio Levaggi

If you need a violin or another instrument of the  modern quartet, Silvio Levaggi is the right person. Silvio and his wife, Anna, live in Cremona and, in my opinion, he makes the best string instruments in Italy and, probably, in Europe.

Grant O'Brien

Claviantica  is one of the most interesting website about harpsichord and neapolitan instruments. Grant is a good friend and one of the most important figure during  my vocational training.  He was Curator of  the Russell Collection until few years ago. His website contains also a lot of informations about the  reorganization of a children's hospital in Zambia. Grant and Jhonny, his partner,  are both involved in this exciting enterprise.


If you are near Metten, east Bavaria, I suggest you to spend a smashing afernoon in the Dick's shop. Everything a wood worker could desire except electric tools.
