I’m having a great time with the viola, I’m starting to get the sound that I want out of it, and it is beautiful. It feels very smooth to play and is really ringing. I played the instrument for the first time in the orchestra today. I think it really suits the sound of the RSNO viola section. The instrument makes it very easy to blend in with this sound. A couple of my colleagues had a play and liked it too. Many people have commented on the lovely back.
