“I really love this viola. I love its soft inner strength, the softness of its voice when he stretches and takes its time... Then I hear Shenn’s voice and Pierrot’s flugelhorn.” Pascal Jugy.
"I want velvet notes!" said Shenn to his strings section. One evening, listening to Chet Baker’s melodies, this exclamation came back in my mind mixed with the memory of my uncle musician: I took my pen and wrote down the first bars of Velours.
