Luthiers at their craft in Girona, Catalunya

_DSC0220.jpg_DSC0230.jpg

While walking through the old quarter of Girona I heard someone playing the cello and became drawn to its source.  I found Eduard Sitjas Bonet and Alexis de Pauw practicing their beautiful craft of hand making stringed instruments.  The recording, with their permission, is of me entering from the street into their workshop.  Eduard emphasized that he was not “playing” the cello, but tuning it.  Please click on the play button below to hear.
