Product Description:
Sit down and relax as you embark on a journey through the history of stringed instruments. We'll start in the 11th century, when musicians in Europe took interest in making their musical instruments sound less like a tool and more like a human voice singing a tune. You'll learn how they turned away from plucking the strings and begun to sustain the tone made by these instruments by drawing bone or wood across the strings. Soon, we'll arrive in the Elizabethan times, when aristocrats were fawning over the viol, but the now-beloved violin was considered unfit for anywhere outside of small parties and pub entertainment. The journey ends in modern day, so that you can properly compare how the art of the bowed instrument has evolved.
