Martin  Schleske - Sound


Become a melodious instrument

One of the greatest contemporary violinmakers describes the secrets of his profession. All phases of violin making, from locating the right wood to curving and varnishing the instrument, are for him a symbol for personal development, for our vocation and place in life. When we are able to express the inexpressible, the unheard aspects of life, we become like a well-tuned instrument. As Martin Schleske says, “In the final analysis, music is prayer cast into sound.” The message of this unique book is mirrored in the sensitive photographs by Donata Wenders, an internationally recognised photographer from Berlin.
