Cremona North - Mark Fewer's latest blog post from Italy

SweetWater owes its beginnings to these people!  Without them, our event never would have come into existence!  I’m happy to make the point here that there are many, many instruments made by our local luthiers that are played around the world by professional musicians.  These instruments make appearances at the greatest concert halls in the world – the Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall, the Kennedy Center, etc.  So the next time you run into David Prentice, Mark Schnurr, Greg Walke, Sybille Rupert, Lou Currah, John Newton…the list goes on and on….imagine their creative output lasting hundreds of years into the future – because it will! ater owes its beginnings to these people!  Without them, our event never would have come into existence!  I’m happy to make the point here that there are many, many instruments made by our local luthiers that are played around the world by professional musicians.  These instruments make appearances at the greatest concert halls in the world – the Concertgebouw, Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall, the Kennedy Center, etc.  So the next time you run into David Prentice, Mark Schnurr, Greg Walke, Sybille Rupert, Lou Currah, John Newton…the list goes on and on….imagine their creative output lasting hundreds of years into the future – because it will! 

 

For a special treat, this year’s SweetWater Festival will see a performance of the Third Brandenburg Concerto on 10 instruments created by local makers.  My thanks to David Prentice for putting this together!  It will be, I hope, a good tribute to “Cremona North".
