I finally got through to the luthier this morning. The 7/8 I was going to book for a week-long home trial sold last week.
Olivier has promised to order another one in for me to try. He has no idea when he’ll have it, though.
I’m either numb or unmoved by it. A bit disappointed, but mainly because I’d made sure my principal was going to be at orchestra this coming week to look at it. Now I won’t be able to run it by her until September. But then, I’m not having much of an emotional reaction to anything these days. I’m really run down and I just don’t have the energy.
