Thanks to the incredible help of SEM I was able to purchase this fantastic bow made by Harm Bakker especially for me. I am extremely happy as without the help of such a kind foundation I wouldn’t have been able to have my own bow. I have been playing on another bow loaned to me by NMF over the past years but it was finally time to get my own as my studies are finished and I needed something different. Harm is a brilliant maker and a cellist himself, so it was sure that he would know exactly how to make me the bow that I wanted. His bow is of the finest quality and it allows me to create all the different colours I want which in turn help me to interpret all the beautiful repertoire with my string quartet and the other ensembles and orchestras I am collaborating with. Thanks again SEM for your sponsorship!
