Update #3

Week two. Still going strong.

1 comment

After two weeks, we're now at $11,700 or so, thanks to all of you! In each update I'll try and include a little more detail about the recording. Today here's another link about Tartini, the violin's first known owner, as well as more information about the esteemed label AVIE, based in London.

Thank you all so much again for your support. Please continue to spread the word, post via facebook and twitter, email, etc.- that has had a tremendous effect.

With much appreciation,

Frank
