A Night With My Violin

It is said the violin has a sound which most resembles the human voice: beautiful, expressive, plaintiff and sometimes ugly, it also crosses all musical genres and is often looked on as a friend, confidant and soul-mate.

Sara Parker explores our relationship with the instrument from concert hall to pub and street corner, violin-making evening class to practice room.

She discovers the allure of an instrument, which can be cradled like a baby or embraced like a lover in this imaginative musical journey.
