This is the the first tune that recorded on a a fiddle that I bought on a flee-market in copenhagen 09/11/2010. The day before a bomb exploded on a hotel just next to the place where the flee-marked was taking place. The place was surrounded by police, military and journalists, and yet I found this lovely fiddle and payed just 400Kr ( 70 dollas ). But it was NOT playable. It had only 2 strings and two broken bows. The hair from the bows and the fiddle was totally intangled with the fiddle and it had no bridge. I went to the local violin builder and bought a tailpiece with fine-tuners, a bridge and a set of strings. Fitting the bridge I tried to match the curve of the bridge of my old fiddle. Now it is playable and I am very happy about it. The fiddle is a copy of a Nicolaus Amatus Cremone violin from 1673.
