Wonders and horrors! Oh my!

Of course that's what everyone said in Germany in 1938 and I guess

OK, NOW this thread is officially over! :-)

No, wait...we haven't even touched on the merits of baroque bows in modern music. Derek mentioned gut strings but I think maybe possibly he was only kidding. I wish people would take this stuff more seriously. You start conveniently ignoring it and next thing you know all yer Slav, Gypsy and Jewish neighbors start quietly disappearing. And yes, I *AM* saying that like it's a bad thing.
