Instruments are not only sounding objects. Surely not for me and not for the people that makes music their life.

You can spend entire years of your life searching for the perfect instrument, perfect for our needs.
I had - and I have - many instruments. I don’t use any longer drums and electric guitar or electronic keyboards but only ancient instruments or a modern piano to compose, because at the present time I play only ancient music or my compositions.
