Subject Music, Scottish, Violin, Le Messe
Item Description Manuscript in Skinner's hand of his virtuoso solo ' Le Messe' ['Le Messie', 'The Messiah']. 'Le Messie' is a violin made in Italy by Antonio Stradivari in 1716. It is highly valued not only because it is a wonderful instrument, but, curiously, because it is in superb condition - it has never been played. This is the final part. Note Skinner's 'special effects' in the first and second lines. Refer to the links below for the other related pages, and click on the audio link (cd119b) to hear Skinner playing it.
