This is take 5 of the small famous segment from the Wintermärchen collection by Hungarian composer Alphons Czibulka, subsequently adapted as 'Hearts And Flowers' by Theodore Moses Tobiani, and more famously known as 'The world's smallest saddest violin'. Some of these takes are a bit noisy due to my next-door neighbours inconveniently running their washing machine audibly on the other side of a very acoustically thin wall. As requested by Jcove91, performed by me on my 18th century German violin with no maker's label and a C.F. Durro composite material bow. Recorded with a Shure Beta 58A, M-Audio Firewire 410 sound card and Garageband on a 2 x 2.66 GHz Dual Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro running 10.6.2.

    For classroom use. Introducing students to the different sounds of an orchestra. Title one School items and of course music is not a core subject... This is a great help.

    Hi! I'm producing a track, It's right if I use your sample? Obviously I'm going to put your info as the source of the sound. Please let me know.
