TLI: Meet the Makers – Benoît Rolland, Bow Maker
July 5 @ 4:00 pm
Part of Tanglewood Learning Institute’s Meet the Makers series. “A violin without a bow is only a guitar.” Benoît Rolland—a 2012 MacArthur Fellow and a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres—is one of the world’s preeminent bow makers in the French tradition. He counts Yo-Yo Ma, Anne-Sophie Mutter, and Leonidas Kavakos among the leading soloists and chamber musicians who have used his bows. Join us for an exploration of the art and science of bow-making and a sneak peek at his new conducting batons.
