It certainly looks challenging to play, and I’m not sure why the three instruments weren’t connected by the scroll-ends, but Alex Sobolev’s Triolin sure is lovely.

    shouldn’t they stand back to back to back to play it, not facing each other?

    Lack of video is easilly explained. The violin is placed on the chin to play properly. Those folks are only holding it for the pic this is just an “art piece”.

    I’m not saying it would be particularly comfortable to play, but it’s not improbable. Just think of cello position, not violin position. You don’t need to stick the tail of a cello under your chin, you just need it to be supported. In this case, the support is provided by two other people!

    to death, in Lakeland, Fla., Sept. 13, 2013. Investigators say the girl was despondent
    after others had posted hate messages about her online, and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is investigating whether he can file charges under Florida’s new cyberbullying law.ugg outlet
