… in Spring 2014, I was in the final months of advanced Master studies for contemporary chamber music. I definitely not intended to become a specialist for 18th century Italian salterio music. BUT life had another plan! The unexpected opportunity to buy this beautiful salterio by Michele Barbi (built in Rome in 1725) was the starting point of the most incredible journey of my professional life. I didn’t doubt a second when seeing this salterio for the first time – I just felt “YES” inside… The next day it was mine. ❤️IMG_0648
